Council Grove Life Center Hires New Director

The Council Grove Life Center announces the hiring of Monica Simecka as the new Life Center director. Monica assumes her duties on February 19, replacing Jessica Young, who served as director the past two and half years.

The daughter of John and Linda Cosgrove of Council Grove, Monica brings thirteen years of experience in the health and fitness field to the position. She worked in Topeka at Wood Valley Racquet Club and Fitness Center during those thirteen years in various positions, including fitness advisor, human resources director for 200 employees and director of operations for the four Topeka locations. She has also completed NutraMetrix training that allows her to coordinate with health professionals to customize wellness solutions for patients.

Monica also served on the board of directors for CASA of Shawnee County, volunteering for the welfare of children in foster care. She earned her associates degree from Washburn University and will complete her bachelors degree in technology administration, with a minor in business, in May 2015.

Monica, her husband Jay, and children Creighton, Claudia and Crew recently moved from Topeka to her hometown of Council Grove.

“We appreciate all the time, energy and enthusiasm that Jessica Young devoted to her job," said Council Grove Life Center board president Tim Tyner. “We’re excited to hire Monica for the position, and look forward to all she has to offer as a Council Grove native and an experienced professional in the health and fitness field.”
