Hello everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a master’s student in Dr. Wilund’s Renal & Cardiovascular Disease Research Lab at UIUC. My research looks at the effect that exercise has on patients with chronic kidney disease. This is my second year as the LFP Coordinator and I’m so lucky to call this “work”! I am originally from Hoopeston, and completed my bachelor’s at Indiana State University in Exercise Science. Looking forward to another great year with LFP!

Cait Egan

Hi everyone! My name is Cait Egan and I am a junior in the kinesiology program with a minor in music. I hope to eventually be a physical therapist with a focus in neurology. I’m from Oak Park, Illinois which is the first suburb outside of Chicago. I am a certified personal trainer currently working for campus recreation. Fitness is a huge part of my life and I love sharing it with others! You can catch me teaching stretch and strength on Mondays and balance on Wednesdays. In my free time I love to sing and am the president of an a cappella group on campus called ‘No Comment’. Excited for the semester and I hope to see you in classes!
