Director, Wellness

wy5@nyu.edu 

Wayne started with NYU Abu Dhabi in July 2010 as the Associate Director of Athletics. Given he had previously worked in health care administration as the director of a cancer care center in the US, he was asked to step in to oversee wellness activities for the University. Wayne has been a runner for 45 years including 11 marathons, and enjoys all sports. He appreciates the opportunity to teach PE running classes and loves coaching runners of all ages, shapes and sizes at NYUAD. He has three adult daughters who live in the US and UK.
