I am a faculty member in the Department of Kinesiology at James Madison University, and am happy to be part of such a great department. I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Exercise Physiology from Virginia Tech, and am a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. I am certified by the ACSM as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist, and also hold the ACSM Exercise is Medicine Level III Credential. I have over 19 years experience in clinical exercise testing and rehabilitation, and have worked with several chronic disease populations. My research focuses on clinical and applied exercise physiology, and am currently examining the physiological consequences of obstructive sleep apnea, including autonomic and cardiovascular function, and how physical activity and exercise can impact patient outcomes.
