Dr. Karen Wonders has a name that fits her life. Karen earned her Ph.D. in exercise physiology from the University of Northern Colorado, and currently serves as an exercise physiology professor at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Her husband, Andrew, is an assistant professor of sport business management at Cedarville. They have seven children, affectionately known as The Seven Wonders. She is also the founder and executive director of Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, a non-profit offering physical rehabilitation for cancer patients, which can help increase treatment effectiveness. While she cares for the physical health of patients, her ultimate desire is pointing them to eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, which Dr. Karen Wonders founded and leads, comes alongside cancer patients to help them with exercise plans that aid their recovery.
Dr. Wonders longed to make not just a difference in the health of her patients, but wanted to be able to point them to Christ, so she pursued a Master of Ministry degree from Cedarville.
