Profile

Dr. Holloway is currently a Professor in the Kinesiology and Health Promotion degree program within the Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies. Dr. Holloway brings a breadth of experience to Sheridan, as both a clinician and leading researcher in her field. Following her Honours BSc and MSc in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo, Dr. Holloway pursued a clinical career at the Peter Munk Cardiac Center at the University Health Network (UHN). During this time, as the sole exercise physiologist, she led the implementation of exercise prescription for a myriad of complex cardiovascular patients, served as the Clinical Co-Chair of the Employee Wellness Committee, an accreditation team member for Cardiology, and a student mentor. Subsequent to her 10-year clinical career, Dr. Holloway returned to the University of Guelph to complete her PhD in Exercise Physiology investigating the effects of high intensity versus endurance exercise in heart failure. Following her PhD, Dr. Holloway completed two NSERC funded post-doctoral fellowships (the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands and McMaster University) investigating the effects of exercise and inactivity on protein metabolism. .
