My name is Veronica Garcia, I am a junior at Washington State University majoring in Sport Science. I am currently conducting research involving mindfulness and body image in yoga. In the future I plan to attend graduate school and continue my current research and/or explore how chronic diseases can affect movement.
I’m a senior majoring in Sport Science and minoring in Psychology. I enjoy hiking, running, and yoga to keep myself physically and emotionally fit.
I’m most interested in mindfulness and how it can be used to improve mood and overall mental health. I also want to use what I learn in this lab to someday be able to motivate my future patients in a physical therapy clinic.
After graduating from WSU, I plan on attending PT school and become a physical therapist.
