Connections Count for Kinesiology Alumni
In the spring of 2008, Joy Bauer was featured in a Class Act article for TERP magazine that highlighted her many accomplishments. Joy earned her BS in Kinesiological Sciences from the University of Maryland in 1986 and completed her MS in Nutrition at New York University.
Kinesiological Sciences Alumna Katrina Grant, 2004 BS, Cum Laude, came across the article and was immediately impressed. She felt that they had much in common--both were Kinesiology majors, had some of the same professors, and shared many professional interests. At her mother's urging, Katrina emailed Joy introducing herself and letting her know how enthused she was to read about someone in a profession that she was passionate about. Joy immediately responded, delighted to have a Terp contact her, and extended an invitation to meet with Katrina.
Katrina traveled to New York City this past spring to meet with Joy, and was hired on the spot as an intern at Joy Bauer Nutrition, Inc. Joy has her working on many different projects including doing research for Joy's new book, which is due to come out sometime this fall or winter. Katrina also writes much of the copy for Joy's comment on the TODAY Show.
