Morgan Mydloski

Morgan Mydloski

Morgan is a second-year student in the Exercise Physiology M.S. program. Preceding her graduation from Alma College with a B.S. in Exercise Science, she took part in a community fitness program where she helped implement training programs for adult populations and spent many hours tutoring students. She is now working in the Integrative Exercise Physiology Lab and assisting with ongoing studies. Her interest in exercise physiology stems from her (interest) in understanding how the body works in order to help others. In her free time, she enjoys reading, walking, and spending time with close friends and family.

Sandra Fredericks

Sandra Fredericks

Sandra is a first- year student in the Exercise Physiology M.S program. After graduating from Cornerstone University with a B.S in Exercise Science, she worked as a Flexologist at Stretchlab, where she focused on working one-on-one with clients using PNF stretching techniques to improve range of motion and quality of life. She is now working in the Integrative Exercise Physiology Lab, assisting with current research regarding relationships between exercise, blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and other blood markers. Her passion for Exercise Physiology and research stems from a research internship during her undergraduate studies as well as being a former collegiate athlete. Being exposed to article writing and data collection sparked an interest in the way the body responds to exercise. Beyond the lab, she enjoys going to the gym, and expressing herself creatively through art and poetry.
