Kelley Hammond attended Creighton University, where she competed on the Women’s Rowing team and earned a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in 2008. After graduation, she moved to Memphis, Tennessee where she earned her Master of Science in Health & Sports Science. She taught in the Department of Health & Sports Science at the University of Memphis for two years before working as a research assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for a year. Dr. Hammond then studied muscle biology in Parkinson’s disease and earned her Doctorate of Philosophy in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She completed postdoctoral training at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) where she studied the effects of crush injury and simulated air travel on skeletal muscle regeneration in rodent models. She stayed at UNLV for a year as a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology & Nutrition Science before returning to the Department of Exercise Science & Pre-Health Professions at Creighton in 2019.
