I have a passion to understand how the musculoskeletal prevents injury and allows for athletic performances. As an undergraduate at Ohio University, I was enthralled by anatomy and exercise physiology. As a cross-country student-athlete, I struggled to solve the mystery of how to my prevent injuries and maximize my performances from a physiological standpoint.

During graduate school in exercise physiology I began to piece together these things. My love for sports and coaching led me to become a volunteer coach for the men's and women's cross country, track & field, and field hockey teams while completing my degree. I now work with these teams in addition to my full time career as a lecturer in human anatomy and physiology courses.

I teach Biological Science major students (Pre-Med, PT, AT, PA, OT, etc.) and non-major students (nursing, nutrition, public health, etc.) and "coach" them to success in the classroom. My ElliptiGO research ( blends together my love for athletics, physiology, and preventing injuries. Overall I am passionate about enabling my students, athletes, and others to success through science and sport.
