PhD Student, Faculty of Health
Supervisor(s): Dr. Olga Theou
Andrea attended the University of New Brunswick (UNB) where she received both her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a Master’s of Exercise and Sport Science under the supervision of Dr. Danielle Bouchard. Andrea is currently enrolled in the PhD program in the Department of Health at Dalhousie University under the supervision of Dr. Olga Theou, where she studies how lifestyle behaviors such as exercise, nutrition, and sleep habits influence frailty.
Andrea’s interest in health and the aging process began at UNB while working hands on in a nursing home with a frail population. Since then she has been passionate about how lifestyle behaviors can impact older adults’ quality of life. Over the next few years, she hopes to learn more about the complexity of frailty.
