Dr. Heather E. Webb received her undergraduate degree in Athletic Training from Iowa State University, a Master’s in Sport Psychology from Southeastern Louisiana, and her Ph.D. from the University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy!) in Exercise Physiology. Her research interests focus on the psychobiology of health and human performance. More specifically, her focus has been on the physiological mechanisms that explain psychological responses during occupational tasks and sporting events and their impact on health. Secondly, she looks at the impact of various stressors on healing in athletes after injury. Her favorite hormone is cortisol and her favorite non-sport related fun thing to do is stressing out people (especially students, because she can call it research).
