Biography

I am originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and found my way to King for my undergraduate education. I received my BS in athletic training while competing on the University’s volleyball team. Upon graduation, I returned home and completed my MS at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, majoring in exercise physiology with a concentration in athletic training. I spent 2 years working as a graduate assistant athletic trainer and completing my thesis entitled “A Comparison of Biomechanical Differences, Patient Outcome Measures, Jump-Landing Adaptations, and Strength Deficits between ACL Reconstructed Individuals and Matched Healthy Controls”.

I began working at King as an Assistant Athletic Trainer and the following year began teaching in the athletic training and exercise science programs. I currently teach both upper and lower division athletic training courses along with introductory courses in the exercise science program.

I enjoy any type of outdoor recreation including backpacking, fishing, mountain biking, beach volleyball, and hiking. You will often find me trying to apply my knowledge of exercise physiology and athletic training in the King University weight room or athletic training facility.

Current research

I am interested in the use of patient reported outcomes in determining an athlete's readiness to return to play after ACL reconstruction. Future research will focus on patient reported outcomes and their correlation with sports performance after injury.
