What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love exploring the city, listening to live music, and fishing. There is so much water around here and I plan on taking advantage of it before going into full hibernation during my first winter here.
Why did you choose the training profession?
Athletic training is an incredibly rewarding profession. I love that athletic trainers are so dynamic. We are some of the only health care providers that are expected to support patients in injury prevention or through rehabilitation one moment and emergency care the next.
The best part about training is…….
Watching patients return to the sports they love. For some, an injury can be the lowest point in their life. It is incredibly rewarding to help a person through the healing process, mentally and physically, and witness their journey to success.
