I am currently the Chair of the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and have served in this role since 2016. I primarily teach in the Rehabilitation Science major focusing on topics of fitness assessment and exercise prescription for healthy and clinical populations, exercise physiology and electrocardiography. I came to UW-Eau Claire in 2005 following teaching at South Dakota State University for four years. I received my PhD in Health, Physical Education and Recreation with a focus on Exercise Physiology in 2001. My research interests include sports physiology (hockey and baseball), applied cardiovascular physiology, and enhancing functional abilities of younger and older adults and those with chronic disease. I also have coached hockey at the youth level for many years and coached high school baseball at Eau Claire Memorial serving as the Pitching coach 2010-2022. My family includes my wife, Jill, and my two boys, Ben and Zach.
