Jeffrey Timmer is an Associate Professor in Human Performance and Movement Sciences at Keene State College. He has been at  KSC for 17 years.  "I grew up in Michigan but my wife originates from Massachusetts, so it has been a blessing to work in the New England area at Keene State College. I have three children ages 10,13,and 16 which makes for a very busy life.  I played three sports at Calvin College, and I am an avid sports fan, and travel all around New England to watch my kids play sports. I graduated from Calvin College with a BA in Physical Education, I received a MA in Exercise Science from Central Michigan University, and finally received my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in Exercise Physiology. My research interests involve Physical Activity and it effect on cardiovascular risk factors, and I also really enjoy the area of Sport Supplementation to improve performance. I enjoy learning, especially when it involves technology and want to improve my classes using technology in a correct way to make a higher quality learning experience."
