Philosophy 

I’ve always wanted to work with athletes under the sports medicine umbrella. When I was applying for graduate schools, athletic training was something that found me. Once I started, I knew that this was the field I was meant to be in. I love the emergency medicine, rehabilitation, injury prevention and being able to help athletes of all sports and ages.
