Master of Science, PE with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology - Arizona State University
Bachelor of Science, Zoology - Kansas State University
My first career, while being a wife and mother, was teaching high school biology. After our two children graduated from high school, I went back to college to earn a graduate degree in exercise science. This degree was fueled by my passion for group fitness, particularly aerobics. I continue to teach group fitness as a Pilates instructor. Having been born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, my husband and I are new to Michigan. We moved to Michigan because our two grandchildren and their parents live here. Academic advising and teaching were both a part of my life at Northern Arizona University before joining the School of Health Promotion and Human Performance.
