Faculty and Staff: Bryan Poppe

Personal Information

Bryan enjoys riding around the country on his BMW sport touring motorcycle with his wife, Shaunda. He also likes motorcycle racing, "heavy metal" music, and to achieve somewhat of a balance, he has an avid interest in horticulture and landscape design. Bryan is also in a constant state of soreness, as it seems he is continually training for marathons and short distance races. He also volunteers at beginning running clinics and events.
