I am currently an Exercise Physiologist/Research Assistant/Lab Technician in the Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Sciences within the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University.  I spend my days assisting the Lab  Director, Dr. Brian Clark, with ongoing research in the fields of muscular fatigue and  neuromuscular adaptations to changes in activity (for example, exercise, or disuse).  For more detailed information on the research we do in our lab, go here.

I am also coaching cross country for Warren High School, which is near my home.  I began coaching at Warren in 2007, while employed there as a Physical Education Progress grant coordinator.  Shortly after assuming the cross country position, however, I was presented with the opportunity to work at Ohio University.

I ran cross country throughout high school and college, and during my senior year at  Cameron High School I was 2nd in the state in small schools and 15th overall in West Virginia.  At Davis and Elkins College, I managed to make all-conference and qualified for nationals with my team, and was named an Academic All-American.  Here are some pictures of me in my younger running days.

Some of my my more significant influences have included my parents Ronald and Ruby Hoffman, my cross country coaches Mark Swiger and Will Shaw.
