So excited to introduce to you our newest staff member, PE, Health and nutrition teacher…Maiya Black-Keeling. Maiya started with us as a volunteer last year, teaching PE two days a week on her lunch break and has now joined our staff!!!

Maiya’s heart for kids, her passion for integrating faith and fitness and her love for seeing those around her unveil, know and walk in their fullest potential in Christ is refreshing and energizing. She has quite the resume of awesomeness and we are SO grateful that God has blessed us with her friendship, consulting, wisdom, expertise, knowledge and heart…and not to mention her strength💪🏽!!!

”Hi! I am so honored to be a part of such an amazing place!

I’m a Navy vet who served on active duty.

I have 3 boys – and so yes that means I am outnumbered!


I’m a Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist and health coach and I love helping ALL people of ALL fitness levels discover and achieve their goals. I truly believe that Exercise IS medicine and that everyone deserves to be the best that God has created them to be.


Fun facts about me…
– originally from Chicago
-favorite color is purple
– I would rather be trapped in a room with 10 snakes than in a room with 1 squirrel😫🤪


I can’t wait to meet all of you!!”

We are so excited to have Maiya as part of this team!!! We will be featuring our staff and students, like Miss Maiya, as we continue on this journey together.

We all look forward to you meeting each of our staff VERY soon face to face as we continue on The Nest adventures.

Welcome Maiya…And thank you for fanning our flames as we seek to glorify God as we pursue his heart!!!
