Full CV

I earned my BA in Sociology and BS in Exercise Science from Truman State University in 2009. The following Fall I began the Medical Sociology Ph.D. program at UAB. My research interests include physical activity and body composition before and during pregnancy and how they relate to perinatal outcomes, as well as how to improve exercise adherence among pregnant women. In my free time I enjoy running and lifting weights. I also have a passion for playing volleyball and soccer which partially motivates my research interests.
