Pearce would like to recognize Bill Holmes as our June Employee of the Month!
Bill has been working at Pearce for about 10 years as a Yoga Instructor and Running Club Instructor in our Fitness Department and has been a member of Pearce for more than 20 years.
Bill is an avid runner and has been for many years. He has coached beginner runners for the Steamboat Classic and IVS Half Marathon. Bill has a love for yoga and has extensive training in it. About 10 years ago, Liz Thorpe (previous Fitness Manager) and Laura Kelly (previous Fitness Instructor) asked Bill to join the Fitness Department and start teaching Yoga classes. So he did 🙂
When Bill is not teaching at Pearce, he enjoys fishing – once a week in season, yoga, meditation and participating in road and trail races. Bill serves as Vice President of Illinois Valley Striders and serves on the Building & Grounds Committee for his church, St. Michael & All Angels.
Bill loves animals and has a 12-year-old cat named Bella.
Bill has many inspirational quotes that he lives by but some of his favorites are, “Let Go, Let God”, “One Day At A Time” and “Do The Right Thing”.
Bill says, “Working at Pearce is wonderful and my favorite part is the people. The staff and clients are amazing and the flexible work schedule is nice”.
Fitness Manager, Megan Rupiper, describes Bill as dependable/reliable, very knowledgeable in yoga and running and Bill is a family man! Bill has six children and 10 grandchildren spread around the world, from California to New York to South Korea.
Thank you, Bill, for choosing to be a part of our Pearce family!
