After receiving a BS/MS in Exercise Science from Mason, I attended University of Kansas for a PhD in Exercise Physiology with a research emphasis on athlete monitoring and endogenous testosterone in athletes. From there, I moved to University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where I was an Assistant Professor in Exercise and Sport Science. I have been teaching college classes and advising students for the past 10 years, and I have continued to train as an athlete and coach individual athletes, adding to 10+ years of personal-training experience. I love fitness! I am very excited to be returning to my alma mater as the Kinesiology Internship Coordinator. I will have teaching responsibilities as well, and I plan to remain active in research. If you would like to meet with me in-person, please email me and let me know what days/times you will be on the SciTech campus, and I will be delighted to meet with you. 
Research Interests

Athlete monitoring, sport/exercise endocrinology, muscle physiology, human performance
