I am an assistant professor in the exercise science department at Trine University. I hold an EdD from Regent University in Educational Psychology, and I am a two-time alum of Trine, graduating with both my bachelor of science in 2010 and again in 2014 with a master of science in Leadership. I am a certified corrective exercise specialist, behavior change specialist, and personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and have trained a diverse population of clients since 2012. Further, over the past 8 years, I have taught within exercise and health sciences as well as psychology at universities around the area as well as in the Southwest. As a Trine alum, it feels like coming home, and I’m very excited to once again be a part of the Thunder community.

 I grew up in the lake area of Fremont/Angola and recently relocated back after three years of living in Lubbock, Texas. I enjoy time spent with my husband and our Golden Retriever.
