I was on the ground level of the creation of Loyola’s Exercise Science Program and have been witness to its incredible growth over the last decade. In 2010, this program started with five students and six adjunct faculty operating out of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. In 2012, this program moved to The Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing and expanded to over 100 students, three full-time and seven adjunct faculty, as well as the creation of BVM Human Performance Lab. In 2019, this program moved to the Parkinson School, growing to over 135 students, five full-time and 10 adjunct faculty, as well as the creation of the Masters of Exercise Science Program and Alfie Sports Performance Lab. As a main pillar of the Parkinson School, the Exercise Science Program means continued growth in students and faculty, global research opportunities, expansion of community service, access to exceptional resources and inter-professional collaboration in the field of health sciences and public health. I am enthusiastic to contribute and bear witness to the Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health’s production, advancement and development.
The five tenants of a Jesuit education are Commitment to Excellence, Faith in God, Service that Promotes Justice, Values-based Leadership and Global Awareness. I truly live a blessed life and, in gratitude, choose a “Life of Service.” Serving God, students, community and loved ones is my mission and echoes the Loyola University’s mission. During my 12 years at Loyola University, I’ve been afforded an amazing opportunity to educate and mentor hundreds of students, preparing them for challenging service-oriented careers, watching them grow and feeding their potential. The passion I have for this life-long dedication to service extends beyond my employment. I choose to serve in my community, volunteer teaching catechism at my parish, coaching youth sports and leading exercise group sessions via F.L.I.P. I teach my four children to serve, guiding them to lead, caretake, nurture and coach.
