She received her BSN from Pacific Lutheran University in 2010 and PhD from Rush University in 2016. Between 2016 and 2018, she completed the first Kellogg Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Rush University College of Nursing. She is a nurse researcher with a commitment to improving cognition and health of older adults. She has a strong background in health behavior research, focusing on the testing of sustainable lifestyle approaches to encourage long-term adherence and bring satisfaction to older adults. Her intervention work is informed by her research on the effects of lifestyle physical activity and sedentary behavior on cognition, and has a history of obtaining funding for this line of research. Currently, Dr. Halloway is testing two multimodal biobehavioral interventions that delay memory loss and improve brain health in at-risk older adult populations. This study, funded by the NIH National Institute of Nursing Research, focuses on diverse older women with cardiovascular disease.
