Meet The Team
Sarah Evans is passionate about the health and wellbeing industry. She is a Registered Nurse with Cardiovascular Intensive Care experience, the owner of a massage studio and has worked as a Massage Therapist since 1998. She is the co-owner of a local yoga studio and has completed the highest level of training (F.I.T. to Lead) through the Baptiste Yoga Institute. Her love of yoga comes from not only the wide ranging health benefits, but also it's ability to create connection between people and develop powerful leaders. She founded 3 Rivers Yoga Foundation to strengthen our community by connecting people through a shared experience and making yoga accessible to anyone, anywhere. She currently serves as the President of the organization.
Jen Mills is a tier one certified Baptiste teacher, a 200 hour RYT, and has been teaching Baptiste Yoga for the past five years. Through the Baptiste methodology, Jen discovered her passion for health and healing and pursued this interest further by becoming a massage therapist. Being a part of the 3 Rivers Yoga Foundation is her way to give back and to be of service to the community. Her hope is that by teaching the methodology, she can pass this gift on to her students, and for them to discover their passion and live their best life. When she is not teaching yoga, Jen enjoys spending time with her family, friends, snuggling her pups, summer days on her porch, and cozy fires in her living room.
Nate Heim is a payroll accountant working towards his CPA. He came to yoga in a slightly unconventional manner, by watching his wife go through B.R.A.V.E. teacher training program and conveniently following along just off camera. Very quickly he discovered a joy and passion for yoga that gave him a new outlet mentally and physically. Nate is excited and proud to be part of such a wonderful and inviting community. When he is not working Nate enjoys running and training for marathons, reading, cooking, and spending time with his wife, daughter, and fur daughter.
Terri Walker is a Registered Nurse with over 30 years of experience. She is currently working at Parkview Home Healthcare and Hospice as an Intake Clinical Specialist. She earned her Masters of Science in Nursing Education in 2019. Her nursing experience includes: intensive care, nursing education, and home healthcare. She was introduced to Baptiste's yoga 4 years ago, and she is currently participating in BRAVE Teacher and Leadership training to become a certified yoga teacher. She is married to Steve and a proud mother. She is excited to be a new board member of 3 Rivers Yoga Foundation and is looking forward to being part of helping connect the Fort Wayne community with yoga opportunities.
I have been a part of the Baptiste community since spring of 2021, which is also when I started my yoga journey! I absolutely loved the community and environment at the studio, from the clean aesthetic practice space, to fun monthly challenges, I knew this was a community I wanted to be a part of! I went through teacher training at the studio in 2022 and have been teaching at Baptiste and with 3 Rivers Yoga Foundation since May 2022! Teaching has given me a whole new perspective on leadership, influence, and has helped me gain more confidence in myself. I am recently a new momma to a sweet baby boy, Barrett. I love being outside during the summertime, I enjoy being with people and spending time with family.
"I am involved with 3 Rivers Yoga so that I can be a part of something bigger... to give back to our community by providing something that has been so impactful to me personally."

Jena Snyder is a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and 200 RYT. She has found yoga to help her mentally as well as physically. She is proud to be apart of such a welcoming and amazing community. When she isn't working, she enjoys playing volleyball, reading, or spending time with her husband, daughter and dog, Hazel May.
Sofia Rosales-Scatena is our newest board member, joining our team in 2022. She probably is best known as a 28+ year police officer for the City of Fort Wayne PD, but would rather be known as a Haribo sour gummy bear lover and sparkling water aficionado. Active within the community, she does find time to do a lot of the things she loves - working out, gardening, cooking, and of course, yoga and mediation. She loves to travel as well. Sofia has two kids, two cats and a hamster, and is looking forward to spreading good mental and emotional health through yoga.
