In her role with IWBI, Vienna is part of the Standard Development team and leads the Fitness concept in the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL). Drawing from her background in exercise and movement science and public health epidemiology, Vienna works to curate and translate an evidence-base on the intersection of health and the built environment as it relates to physical activity and ergonomics. Vienna has also supported a suite of research products including the First Edition WELLographies which were released to the Build WELL app throughout 2017. Vienna holds a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, where her graduate thesis work evaluated the relationship between physical activity and lymphedema in a cohort of breast cancer survivors. During her tenure at Mailman, she worked as a research assistant on NIH funded physical activity projects in cancer survivors and helped launch a pilot study that examined the impact of physical activity on the human microbiome. Vienna serves as the Chair of Communications for the American Public Health Association’s Physical Activity Section and is also a member of the Sedentary Behavior Council of the International Society for Physical Activity and Health.
