SLAM Boss

Katie Provencher | katiep@strollerstrongmoms.com

Katie has a bachelor’s degree in both nursing and psychology and has been an ACE certified group fitness instructor since 2013. She is also CPR/AED certified through AHA. She holds a license as a registered nurse in New York State. She became a member of Stroller Strong Moms Columbus in 2012. After falling in love with the community and program, she went on to becoming an instructor and then had the opportunity to open SSM Fairbanks. Being a military spouse means home is where the Army sends you, so now that she will be living in Anchorage she will have the opportunity to open SSM Anchorage. She hopes SSM Anchorage will bring the same sense of community the other SLAM villages have built all while role modeling a healthy lifestyle for our kids. Katie’s favorite ways to SLAM are high intensity workouts to music, dancing, and a group run, but occasionally she craves a long solo run with just her music.

The Anchorage Team

Patti Hentschel | Photographer

My name is Patti and I’m a SLAM Anchorage OG and photographer. I’m married to my best friend and we have three beautiful kids who keep us busy day and night. I am so thankful for the ladies of SLAM Anchorage, and I’ve loved being able to photograph them over the past year. When I’m not SLAMing, you can find me reading, running, cooking, or sneaking snacks while hiding from my kids.

Jessica Amacker | Instructor

Jessica is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and CPR/First Aid certified. She is a proud Army brat turned spouse and mom to three kiddos, holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood/Special Education from Mercer University. As a founding member of the Stroller Strong Moms-Leavenworth, Jessica was thrilled to help SLAMboss Katie spread the SLAMlove in The Last Frontier’s second location. Literally, landing in Alaska and slamming less than 10 hours later. Jessica’s favorite part of SLAM (besides the sweaty awesome workout) is the tribe of women and minis just doing “life” together. 

Sophie Herr Instructor

Sophie started coming to SSM Anchorage in 2018 and hasn’t looked back! At SLAM her son has fun and she gets in a great workout, it’s a win-win. Fitness has always had a major role in her life, she played D1 tennis at Gonzaga University where she studied History and Political Science. She is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and CPR/AED certified though AHA. As an Army wife she loves knowing that SLAM is a worldwide community and that each time her family moves she has the chance to join another SLAM family! Sophie’s favorite way to SLAM is through mid distance runs and circuit training.

Gabrielle Tullis Social Media Manager

Gabrielle Tullis is the Social Media Manager for SLAM Anchorage, Savannah, and SLAM Nation. She is an Army wife and a mother to a wild two year old boy. Gabby loves cooking for her family, decorating, reading, and all things Mom-life. She joined SLAM over a year ago when she was new to Anchorage, found her tribe, and never looked back!

I seriously cannot say enough wonderful things about Stroller Strong Moms or Katie! Every workout is something different and as challenging as you want to make it. This group works because of the moms that come and push each other day in and day out. It isn’t just a fitness class, these women become your tribe! And Katie is one of the best, as a fitness professional, athlete and friend!
