Katie Wagner, a Montana native, started teaching at Carroll College in the Fall of 2015 after working for several years in Public Health, Employee Wellness, and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. Katie earned her BS in Exercise Science with a concentration in Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University, and her MS degree from Montana State University in Health and Human Development. She is currently working on her PhD in Health Sciences through the University of South Dakota. Katie’s research interests include prevention factors for type II diabetes and heart disease, particularly the influences of nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction on risk factor modification for various populations. She is interested in teaching people how to make small changes that have large impact on the prevention of chronic disease.
While originally from the beautiful Bitterroot Valley, Katie has lived in Helena for five years and loves the endless opportunities to explore here. She and her husband Matt welcomed their first child, Magdalena, in September of 2017. She loves being a wife and new mom and is grateful to get to “do life” with them. Through this new adventure in parenthood, you can find Katie’s family hiking, cooking, traveling, reading, relaxing, and finding new opportunities to explore life through the lens of a child.
