Kinesiology & Sport Studies (KNSS) Program

Crystal completed her undergrad degree from the University of Alberta in 1998 (an alumnus of RDC as she completed her first 2 years of this degree right here at Red Deer College).  Crystal then began instructing at Red Deer College in 1999 and continued until 2006.  At that time, she started her graduate degree at the University of Calgary and completed her MKin, specializing in Exercise Physiology in 2008.  During her graduate studies, Crystal worked with the undergrad students in the U of C program as well as in the Human Performance Lab before returning to Red Deer College in 2010 in an instructional position.  Crystal is a Clinical Exercise Physiologist, certified through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) and is an Instructor-Examiner for the CSEP Certified Personal Trainer designation.  Her work in the area of exercise science has afforded experience with the severely deconditioned, including populations with chronic disease, all the way through to elite athletes in amateur and professional sport.
