Hey hey! I am Jinger (Ginger with a ‘J’)… the newest member to the Sports Science Team in Boulder. I am thrilled to become a Wahooligan and immerse myself in The Sufferfest culture!
In terms of background, I earned a PhD from CU Boulder in Integrative Physiology with an emphasis on biomechanics. Next, I spent three years at Emory School of Medicine completing a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience before accepting a tenure position at Penn State in kinesiology.
During this academic journey I have both participated and coached others in thousands of events ranging from short running races to multi-day endurance challenges.
Personally, one of my MOST favorite things is exercising outside- and understanding the science behind how to improve fitness and performance is seriously a dream job.
Looking forward to interacting with you all!
