Dr. Jen Katz

Professor, Health & Fitness

I have been teaching in our SSPE department since 2012 and love what I do! I was inspired to pursue a career in the health field because of my own struggles with obesity, disordered eating, and fad dieting. I attended the University of Central Florida for my degrees in Exercise Science and Applied Exercise Physiology, as well as my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction. I am also a proud Valencia alum. I enjoy teaching classes that help our students lead healthier lives through physical, mental, emotional, and social wellness. Whether its Yoga, Kickboxing, CPR/First Aid, or our other classes, it is my goal to help our students find what works for their lifestyle and goals. In my personal time, I’m usually at one of my kids sporting events, working on a home improvement DIY with my husband, or visiting my grandchildren!
