Jennifer Quinn Spotlight in Faculty Friday

Main page content

“We worry about so many things in our lives — our families, our students — that taking care of ourselves comes last,” said Quinn. “It’s so important to value yourself and your health and to make that time. Whatever you enjoy doing in life, you want to make sure you enjoy it for a long time, right?”

UW Tacoma SIAS Faculty Member and Interim Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Jennifer Quinn, has committed to walking 10,000 steps a day!

Dr. Quinn got a FitBit two years ago and it has drastically changed her lifestyle.  She went from walking 2,000 steps a day to a goal of walking 10,000 steps a day.  Dr. Quinn also  promotes her healthier lifestyle by her outlook on math and how it can be utilized.  She is currently illustrating a young adult novel that "integrates that beauty [beauty in people] with the functionality of math".
