Highly Engaged Faculty

“She has impressive experience in the field, but it’s how she teaches it to her students that really makes her shine. She’s a campus-wide favorite because of her wit, humor, and passion. Dr. Chandler is fiercely protective of her students, fights for their educational and career opportunities, and makes sure the program has the newest information in the field. Dr. Chandler is the reason I landed an incredible internship and she makes me proud to be an Exercise Science major.”
