I earned my Ph.D. in Kinesiology with a specialization in Physical Development and Aging from The University of Texas at Austin. I am a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, an ACSM-certified Health/Fitness Specialist, and a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. My research projects have included motivators for and barriers to physical activity, risk factor relationships, body composition, athlete profiling, and talent identification in sport. Work-life balance and strategies for stress reduction are also of interest to me. I enjoy yoga, running, hiking, kayaking, and being outdoors.

I was born and raised in the New York metropolitan area, during which time I had the good fortune be introduced to active sports medicine practitioners and educators. Through my education I was fortunate to learn about the preventative power of exercise. I have followed a path that provide numerous opportunities in the fields of exercise science and sports medicine.
