Olivia M

USA Boxing Certified Coach
Masters in Kinesiology


I attained a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Kinesiology through Iowa State University. During my undergraduate career, I joined the Iowa State Boxing Club and began training for competition. Under the guidance of my head coach and with the support of my teammates, I secured two Midwest Regional Collegiate Championship titles, two National Collegiate Championship titles, and have been deemed a two-time All American. After my competitive years, I pursued a master’s degree in order to study the effects of an alternative physical activity program – boxing – on muscle activity in people with Parkinson’s disease. Through this program, I developed and continue to lead a boxing outreach group for people with Parkinson’s under the tutelage and supervision of my advisor. I am currently working on another graduate degree and am operating as the assistant coach for the Iowa State Boxing Club.
