Arwen is originally from Southern California; after taking an exercise physiology class as an undergraduate, she knew this was a path she wanted to pursue, and teach. During her master’s program, she was exposed to research, and in combining teaching and research, has found her academic calling. As the mom of a young daughter, she is ever the teacher, and loves spending time camping, hiking and showing her new things.
