Chair / Professor — Kinesiology, Nutrition & Recreation
I have been a Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP-C) through The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) since 2000. My career path began as an Assistant Professor at Greensboro College in 2006, before coming to Southeast Missouri State University in 2010.
My line of research in doctorate school focused on lipid and lipoprotein changes with exercise. I have also become more involved with body composition changes over time in Division I athletes and recreationally active individuals. I have been active within the Central States Chapter of ACSM since 2010, and am currently the Executive Director.
