Jayce Dryden is very proud to take on the role as our Practice Representative. Although Jayce would consider himself a ‘Social Butterfly’, we tend to think that might be a bit of an understatement. After attending Prairie High School, Jayce ventured out to see what interested him At Kirkwood in Cedar Rapids. While there, he became An Ambassador there talking to potential students and their families. From that he spent the last few years as a FedEx Delivery driver, where a lot of the surrounding area recognizes him from his dancing videos!
In his free time, when he’s not doing some sort of dancing to get brighten everyone’s day, Jayce is an active member of the Coralville Fire Department. On top of that, Jayce also fills his time with training for Strongman Competitions. He loves helping anyone that he can, and wants to motivate people to do their very best in whatever they’re set out to do. Not only is Jayce more than willing to come up and greet you with a handshake, but he is a big advocate of fitness and taking care of yourself, and that combination is what lead him to Dr. Karim’s office.
