Athletic Trainer


I found the profession of athletic training after my own high school injury. Now working at TRIA, I am able to help provide athletic training services to area high schools, which is very rewarding. I am a big proponent of educating patients and athletes, so they are able to continue to care for themselves after an injury. I enjoy working with athletes and non-athletes in an effort to help people feel better.
