Academic background:

My teaching philosophy I can reflect on a question I was asked early in my career at an interview. I was asked how I measure my success as a professor. My response was my success is reflected in the success of my students. The array of communications from former students including emails, letters, business cards, requests for reference letters, etc. Their successes illustrates how well I did when they were my students. We typically only hear feedback during and right after course has ended. However, the valuable feedback is what is said 1+ years after graduation. I look forward to those comments as I believe they are much more valuable to guide my current teaching practices.

Research interests:

My research interests lie in the role of physical activity and its role in decreasing risk of chronic disease. Most recent interest relates to the effects of chemotherapy on cognitive function during and after treatments, as well as the role in physical activity in cancer patients. Related to cardiovascular function, I wish to determine if there is an effect on resting blood pressure and the position of the clients legs, crossed or uncrossed. My research interests also include the health profiles of college age students, coronary risk factors and their relationship to lifestyle and personality type and issues surrounding female athletes and the female athlete triad. I have numerous publications and have received funding from The Whiteside Institute [St. Lukes Hospital/UMD School of Medicine] as well as numerous internal small grants. Currently I serve on the editorial board of ACSM's Health and Fitness Journal and routinely reviews manuscripts for numerous journals including Metabolism, British Journal of Sports Medicine and European Journal of Applied Physiology. I recently completed a book chapter for a new textbook entitled Physical Fitness and Sports Medicine for Primary Care.

Non-academic interests:

I enjoy running [training for Grandmas 1/2 again], working out, cooking, travel, reading and hiking. I am active as a volunteer with the American Lung Association and passionate about their efforts to reduce tobacco use and availability. I have been active with numerous boards and committees on and off campus. I currently serve UWS as a faculty senator and a member of the Institutional Review Board for protection of human subjects. Aside from the American College of Sports Medicine I has served in varying capacities with American Lung Association, American Heart Association, St. Louis County Smoke Free Coalition, PFLAG and Planned Parenthood. I have also received recognition from ALA, AHA at the regional and national level

Notable awards:

1994 - Scholarship Award, Department of HPERA, UW-Stevens Point

1996 - Fellow American College of Sports Medicine

2012 - Distinction Award from American Heart Association

2016 - Recognized by American Lung Association for Volunteer Efforts with Tobacco Control
