Stephanie MuntenStephanie Munten, HBSc, MSc
Research Coordinator

Stephanie Munten joined the Waypoint Research Institute as a Research Analyst in Fall 2021 and is now the Research Coordinator. She completed her undergraduate degree (BSc, Hons) in Kinesiology and Physical Education at Wilfrid Laurier University, and continued her academic education at Nipissing University where she completed a Master of Science in Kinesiology. The focus of her research was on how environmental stressors influence human physiology.

After completing her MSc, Stephanie was employed as a research assistant at Laurentian University, where she assisted with multiple projects on metabolism and muscle oxygenation in various environments. During her time at Laurentian University, Stephanie was also involved in field-to-lab-to-field based research as a member of the Centre for Research in Occupational Safety and Health. In her roles at Waypoint, Stephanie has supported the coordination and evaluation of projects, such as Leader Standard Work and the Youth and Mindfulness Project with Dr. Soyeon Kim.
