Why did you choose this as your career path?
I was a professional ballet dancer with the Ohio Ballet, but unfortunately I experienced my fair share of injuries. During one of my many rehabs I began inquiring about a career as an athletic trainer. After doing some research I realized that athletic training seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. I immediately applied for and was accepted in to the athletic training program at the University of Akron. I haven’t looked back since!
Your most memorable experience as an athletic trainer?
My most memorable moment occurred while I was still a student. I was the student athletic trainer for the 2009-2010 Men’s soccer team and was given the opportunity to travel with them to the college cup in Cary, North Carolina. Even though we did not win it was still an amazing experience.
