Why did you choose this as your career path?
I chose to go into athletic training because not many other healthcare professions allow you to see your patients day in and day out and have such a profound impact on their lives. I also got into it because there are so many different aspects to this profession that it is difficult to say that you do the same thing every day. 

Your most memorable experience as an athletic trainer?
Thus far my most memorable experience has been as an athletic training student during a rotation at an area high school, I was thanked on senior night by one of my patients and he and his parents who both told me that they didn't  know how they would have gotten through this season without me and my CI's efforts with him that year.
