Stephanie Domitrovich is an Academic Advisor and Associate Adjunct Faculty member within the Health and Human Performance Department at the University of Montana.

She is  an Exercise Physiologist with a background in Athletic Training and Clinical Physiology who also took a number of classes in nutrition during her course work. She finished her BSPE in Exercise Science and Athletic Training at the University of Idaho and her MS in Exercise Science at the University of Montana. Upon graduation from the HHP Department she was asked to continue to work as a research assistant and teach within the department. She also used her Athletic Training certification to cover athletic events at local area high schools and worked at a Physical Therapy clinic in that time as well.

Her teaching for the department has included many areas, from basic nutrition and exercise prescription to kinesiology and the impacts exercise can have on chronic diseases. She has been involved in a number of research projects at UM in environmental and work physiology, clinical exercise science, nutrition and diabetes, and health concerns of wood smoke exposure. Her primary interest is in working with individuals with different chronic diseases. She is passionate about improving quality of life in those around her. 

Over the past five years she has operated as the Academic Advisor in HHP and has expanded the advising program as the Director of Undergraduate Advising. Her goal with the program is to continue to offer sound advice to undergraduates about course work and career opportunities. She continues to strengthen her knowledge in advising policy at UM to ensure the department is providing the best service possible to its student body.

While not at work, Stephanie is busy fishing, skiing, walking, hiking and chasing after her husband, their two young children, and the family dog.
