Why did you choose this as your career path?
I learned to tape in High School and was the “athletic trainer” before we had a professional. I enjoyed helping my classmates and making a difference in their lives. I had a real interest in orthopaedics and sports and found the clinical aspect and athletics to be a nice combination.
