Dr. Ryznar hails from New Hartford, Connecticut. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomolecular Science from Central Connecticut State University and then a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from Wesleyan University. She then taught biology at Quinnipiac University and, later, microbiology at Goodwin College.
She is excited to now call RVU home and is grateful to be a part of a university that offers top-notch medical education and agrees with RVU’s mission. Colorado itself is an adventure and she’s looking forward to embracing the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer—especially skiing in winter.
Aside from skiing, Dr. Ryznar also enjoys running, basketball, live music, and independent films. She admits that she is a die-hard UConn men’s college basketball fan—so if you hear someone cheering for the Huskies, it’s probably her.
