Hello! My name is Kelly. I am a PT instructor here at LBCC and also work at OSU at the STEM Research Center as a researcher.
I began my college career many years ago at a community college in Florida before transferring to a four-year college. As a first generation college student who also worked full-time through my college career, I stumbled and had to learn the culture of higher ed while trying to navigate emerging adulthood. These may be similar challenges you are experiencing. You are not alone!
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Lenoir-Rhyne University in North Carolina and my Master's degree in Human Development and Family Studies at Oregon State University. Prior to returning to graduate school I had an awesome career with the NC State Park Service covering education in the western part of the state. I also am a trained yoga and kids yoga instructor!
I am all about helping people become more resilient and researching how - whether it is spending time outdoors, yoga and mindfulness practices, or through their education.
