About Me

I am an instructor in the Exercise Physiology Department teaching in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. I have worked in community and clinical settings, including a summer internship as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and as a Direct Support Professional with Community Options in Dickinson, ND. I spend my free time teaching group fitness at the YMCA to people with Parkinson's Disease, trail running at Harmon Lake in Mandan, reading, and playing board games with my family.

Why I’m At Mary

I decided to work at Mary because I enjoy community. After transferring from another university in 2018 during my undergraduate education, I was impressed by how this community lived their values rather than just talking about them and continue to admire this today.


I specialize in exercise prescription and cardiopulmonary stress testing for clinical populations. I also have special interests in behavioral health and ultra-endurance sports.
