Dr. Warren was a professor at the University of New Orleans for 24 years. After Hurricane Katrina, she applied for and was offered the position of Professor and Department Chair of Exercise Science at the University of Puget Sound. In August of 2006 she moved to Tacoma, Wash. and began her career at Puget Sound. Since that time she has had several students who have received summer research grants and completed senior theses.  Each of these students has presented their work at conferences such as American College of Sports Medicine or International Society of Biomechanics in Sports.

Dr. Warren intends to continue her line of research in isokinetic testing protocols as well as teaching classes in anatomy, biomechanics, research, sports injuries, and others.  She avidly exercises, enjoys watching college sports, volunteers for Habitat for Humanity, reads as often as possible, gardens, and continues to enjoy life in the northwest.
