Joy Wagner RN, BSN

Joy Wagner is the founder and President of fitMS® NeuroBalance Center NFP, a wellness and resource center for people with conditions that affect mobility and threaten independence.

Joy has a degree in the science of nursing from the University of Iowa. She has practiced nursing and taught in the health field since 1982. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2001, Joy began searching for the best methods to regain her own balance, strength, flexibility, coordination, and nutritional and emotional health. She developed the fitMS® post rehabilitation program in order to share what she learned.

In 2010 Joy founded the fitMS NeuroBalance Center, a 501c3 non profit resource center providing education, fitness, healthcare, counseling, research and support for those living with neuromuscular and autoimmune conditions that threaten independence.

In addition to group and private fitness, yoga and Power Plate® instruction, Joy counsels patients in disease management, educates patients and healthcare providers about MS.
