One thing I really love about this job is that my patients want to continuously improve, or after an injury, be at least as good as before the injury. Knowing that I can help them in that journey to become stronger and smarter is incredibly rewarding.

I discovered the field of athletic training during my time at Portland State University where I spent two years as an intern with the PSU women’s soccer team. The job was never predictable, and I spent a lot of time outside working directly with athletes to help them perform at their best. After graduating from PSU, I enrolled at the University of Arkansas where I earned my Masters of Athletic Training.

One thing I really love about this job is that my patients want to continuously improve, or after an injury, be at least as good as before the injury. Knowing that I can help them in that journey to become stronger and smarter is incredibly rewarding.
