Assistant Fitness Director

Christie Tippett joined the Yates Field House team in July of 2017 as the Assistant Fitness Director. She plans, coordinates, and implements various fitness and wellness programs in collaboration with the Yates Field House fitness and wellness team and across Student Affairs departments.

Christie earned both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree(s) in Exercise Science from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. She was involved in Campus Recreation as a Group Fitness Instructor all throughout her college career and took on the role as the Strength and Conditioning Coach as a graduate assistant, developing and implementing exercise programs for Division II athletes.

Outside of work, Christie can be found exploring the outdoors, biking, lifting weights, or heading to a Nats game. Her dream is to travel the world! Fun fact: Christie has never broken a bone (knock on wood)!
