Shiloah is a doctoral student in the exercise physiology Ph.D. program working under Dr. Ormsbee at the Institute of Sport Sciences at Florida State University. Shiloah received her baccalaureate in kinesiology, as well as her masters in exercise physiology and nutrition, and completed her dietetics program at San Diego State University. After graduate school, Shiloah went on to work for the U.S. Navy as a research physiologist and nutritionist in a biobehavioral sciences lab, focusing on human performance and War Fighter readiness. She also worked as a research coordinator on a large-scale study examining blast exposure and it physiological and psychological detriments in U.S. Navy SEALS. Her interests are body composition and performance, specifically in endurance sports and environmental extremes.
Shiloah enjoys spending time doing yoga, running, surfing, riding hunter jumper, cycling and weight training, and cooking.
- The effects of nutritional interventions as it relates to human performance and body composition
I am currently pursuing a doctorate in Exercise Physiology (Spring 2020) and working in the Institute of Sports Sciences and Medicine (ISSM) Lab. Prior to attending FSU, I received an undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Florida (2012) and an MS in Nutrition from Auburn University (2014). While attending Auburn University I completed my dietetic internship and became a Registered Dietitian.
I enjoy playing competitive beach volleyball and have beaten the world record for one-hand clapping. I once went fencing with the Scottish Olympic Fencing Coach. I’ve also been snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, hot air ballooning over Scotland, and to South Africa as part of a study abroad trip and have a selfie with a zebra.
