Keri not only runs Powered by Driven but brings to you The Studio: Wellness Community of Mandan; a wellness center focused on building better habits together. After years of physical and mental stress on her body and mind, she knew she needed to make a change when the doctor told her if she didn’t reduce her blood pressure in the next 6 months she would be placed on blood pressure medication at the age of 36. With a new found love for mindfulness, breathwork and movement she was able to turn her lifestyle around and never ended up on those blood pressure medications which lead her to want to share this with whoever would listen and created The Studio. The Studio is based in Mandan, ND but with new found technology can be brought to anyone that’s interested.
