Check out Megan Leyba and Dr. Janati’s bios for a glimpse at their past experiences in education:
Class: Applications and Assessments of Upper Body Muscle Function I
About Megan: Hello, my name is Megan Leyba! I have worked for Muscle Activation Techniques™ (MAT) since June 2007. I have been a certified specialist since September 2008 and became a Master Level Specialist in January 2013. As well as seeing clients, I also am the education coordinator and have a large role in the research and development of MAT.
I graduated from St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minn., in 2007 with a degree in biology. I knew that MAT was my passion when I was in high school and graduated with the intention of starting the internship as soon as possible. I received my Master’s degree in Health Fitness Management in December 2012.
I live in Denver, Colo., with my husband and two children (Madison is almost 4 and Easton is 1.5). In my free time I enjoy crochet and softball.
Dr. Jodi Janati
Class: Speech Communications
About Dr. Janati: I have been working in higher education for the past 15+ years and truly value education. I currently teach in the Communication Studies Department at the University of Minnesota. My Ed.D. is in Organizational Leadership and my MA is in Speech Communications.
What I do for fun – I enjoy presenting at and attending conferences to learn more about my field. My book and trainings offer people 101 things to say and do when dealing with difficult interactions and ultimately find their “Conversation Peace.”
Fun Fact – My family of four lives on a small lake near St. Cloud, Minn., and it has taught us to appreciate Minnesota summers.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Janati and Megan to the Online campus!
