Katie Oakley is the Marine Biology and Forensics teacher at Marco Island Academy. She recently reached impressive fitness and weight loss goals through intense personal hard work. She has strong intentions to continue along the path to good health by using the resources now available to her at the Xcel Fitness Spa. The contest for a year’s membership was collaboration between Kiwanis and the Fitness Spa, and was open to all Marco Island pre-school, Tommie Barfield, Marco Charter Middle School, and Marco Island Academy teachers.
