Dr. Waldron is Associate Professor of Physical Education, specializing in the psycho-social aspects of sport and physical activity. She holds a B.A. in Movement and Exercise Science from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. She received her M.Ed. in Developmental Kinesiology from Bowling Green State University, OH and her Ph.D. in Kinesiology from Michigan State University. Dr. Waldron arrived at the University of Northern Iowa in 2003.

Dr. Waldron grew up in Minnesota playing sports, including basketball, cross country, track, racquetball, and any other sport or physical activity she could. Her high school basketball team (St. John's Prep) broke a 35 game losing streak her sophomore year. Her team continued to improve and won first-round district games her junior and senior year. She went on to play college basketball at the DIII level. Although three knee surgeries prevent her from engaging in many of the previously mentioned activities, she still is active via biking, walking, swimming, and hiking (when travelling). She can also be found walking the Meggie-dog, gardening, reading, and watching sports, especially women's sports.
