My graduate work was focused on the use of prenatal exercise to promote cardiometabolic health in women diagnosed with, or at risk for gestational diabetes. This work led to the development of target heart rate zones for pregnant women which are included in current national and international guidelines for exercise. My postdoctoral fellowship investigated the impact of exercise on cerebrovascular function in older adults with a focus on post-menopausal women.
