Exercise Physiologist; PhD Candidate, University of Connecticut; MS, Allied Health-Health Promotion; Graduate Fellow, NASA CT Space Grant Consortium. I am a doctoral student at the University of Connecticut in the Department of Kinesiology. I am also currently an Exercise Physiologist for the Department of Preventive Cardiology at Hartford Hospital as well as an adjunct lecturer for Middlesex Community College. Professionally, I am well versed in the field of Health and Fitness, with major interests in cardiovascular health, exercise prescriptions, blood clot risk in endurance athletes, and health motivation. I have published and presented my work all over the United States as a member of the American College of Sports Medicine. I stay busy by running with (or after) my two kids and training to run a marathon in every single state!
