Leah Kern, B.S.
Background: In combining my love for movement and activity with my goal of being able to have a positive impact on people, I was led to study exercise physiology at Marquette while also on track to earn my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. During my time as an undergraduate, I have been intrigued to learn more about the capacity of the human body and the factors that limit physical function in hopes of being able to positively influence healthy and clinical populations in the future. I was introduced to the lab through an internship and am excited to be able to continue my involvement with research.
Outside the Lab: Apart from academics, I enjoy anything outdoor related — running, hiking, camping, or kayaking to name a few. I also love getting out to see new places and meet new people.
