I received my BS degree in Athletic Training from BYU in 1999, Masters of Education from the University of Nebraska in 2002, and PhD in Exercises Science from BYU in 2010. I have worked as a Certified Athletic Trainer in the collegiate setting, clinic setting, high school setting, and professional setting. The majority of my athletic training practice was spent with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I have worked as both full time and adjunct faculty at Utah Valley University and BYU and was hired as an Assistant Professor at BYU in 2010.
Research InterestsMy research interests have largely focused on the efficacy and efficiency of therapeutic modalities. Within the spectrum of modalities I have spent the majority of my time with heating instruments and their effect on tissue reaction, both superficially and deep.
Teaching InterestsMy teaching interests are orthopedic injury evaluation, both upper and lower extremity, as well as therapeutic modalities. I have also taught pharmacology, focusing on chemical and mechanical processes of drug delivery and the body reaction to drug therapy.
