SLAM Boss

Hiiiii! I’m Kelly Scardina; A California native, mom of 2, wife of 1. I’m an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor, and CPR + AED certified through the American Heart Association. I also hold a BA in Communication Studies with a focus in Event Planning from San Jose State University!

Growing up, I played every sport under the sun! I loved being active, and the fun that came with team sports. But the best part for me was the social aspect, and “what are we doing after”?!  So when I joined SLAM Tacoma in 2019 as an adult and mother, I knew it was for me. 

Sports/active + event planning + social events = a dream come true! 

As I got more involved, I learned I also loved encouraging women, and showing them that they can do hard things, no matter how big or small! I love being a cheerleader for anyone trying to achieve a goal, and want to help them to take it the end! So I decided earlier this year in 2021, that I was going to get certified as a group fitness instructor to motivate women of all levels to accomplish their goals, whatever those might be, while having the best time doing it!

The Tacoma Team

Ember Steen | Instructor

Hi, my name is Ember Steen. I am an ACE certified group fitness instructor, CPR and AED certified. I hold a Bachelors degree in Apparel Merchandising, Design and Textiles from Washington State University. Go Cougs! I grew up in Washington and have such a love for everything it has to offer. I am a mother to two active littles and it has been amazing watching them develop their own passion for working out! 

I joined SLAM Tacoma in October 2020 and I was about 2 months postpartum. This community filled a hole that I didn’t know I needed. The instant encouragement and love I felt was awe inspiring. I already had a passion for coaching and helping others prior to becoming a mom through gymnastics and cheer, that coaching for SLAM only felt like the next step for me. I am motivated daily from each and every person I get the opportunity to interact with, I can only hope to give back what SLAM has given me.

Jess Hanneman | Instructor

Hi, my name is Jess Hanneman. I’m a mom of two and originally from New Zealand. I am an ACE certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, and CPR/AED certified. I hold a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing and Management from The University of Auckland.
Fitness has always been a part of my life. I grew up playing many sports and had a huge passion for track in high school. I am a former IFBB Bikini Pro and loved all of the opportunities that came with representing New Zealand around the world.

I joined SLAM Tacoma in 2020. I remember showing up to my first class extremely nervous but everyone was so welcoming, energetic, and encouraging! I knew from that moment I had found an incredible group of women. Every day I am inspired by the mamas that show up and give it their all. I want to motivate and support every single one of you to achieve your goals.

Meg Pasquarette | Instructor

Hi! My name is Megan Pasquarette; An Ohio native and mom of two littles. I’m an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor and CPR AED certified. I am also a Registered Nurse currently working at a local hospital outside of Tacoma in their Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. I grew up a multi-sport athlete and love all things fitness from running to HIIT to yoga. Most days you will find me chasing after my toddler as she shoves as many rocks as she can into her coat pocket.

Why did I choose SLAM? As a young military spouse and new mom in Savannah, GA, I spotted this group of strong moms crushing a workout with their stroller and kids at a local park in our town. Not long after, I tried out a class and immediately knew this was the community I was looking for. Working out with these incredible and inspiring mamas everyday has made stepping into this role easy and fun.

SLAM has introduced me to some of the most inspiring, motivating, and badass mothers I’ve ever met! I love the awesome and challenging workouts, but even more I love the lifelong friendships I’ve made.
