Becka’s teaching experience and interests include exercise physiology, personal training, strength and conditioning, and sports ministry. She finds joy in helping students learn the foundations of exercise science, identify their unique gifts, and provides hands-on experiences with current projects so connections can be made between theory, gifts, and practice. She has a passion for international work, which led her to attend the International Sports Leadership School through Fellowship of Christian Athletes in South Africa and spend time working at the Alliance Academy in Amman, Jordan. Her recent research conducted with undergraduate Jessup students, focused on the influence of hormones in strength training programs for female athletes and was presented at the National Strength and Conditioning Association conference.
