Hello attendees! I grew up in White Bear Lake, MN. Today I live in Madison, WI and telecommute for Human Kinetics (located in Champaign, IL). I have worked for HK for 25+ years and have spent the last 16 years as Fitnessgram Director.  For the Brockport Physical Fitness Test, I have worked with the authors (Joe Winnick and Frank Short) for the first and second edition of the manuals as well as for the Fitness Challenge software.  Currently for Brockport, I am working with the authors as well as in-house HK staff for updating of the BFPT web site and resources.  Our target date to complete these revisions is before the end of Dec 2015. I also worked with Joe Winnick on his book, Adapted Physical Education and Sport, 5th edition. 
Education: BS in Physical Education from the University of WI-LaCrosse; MS in Kinesiology with emphasis in biomechanics from the University of Illinois
