Prior to USJ I taught at Westfield State University from 2022-2023 and at Eastern Connecticut State University from 2021-2022. Prior to my career in academia I spent nearly 6 years as a clinical exercise physiologist working in cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs in Massachusetts. My special focus was on patient education and secondary prevention through exercise and other modalities.
