Philosophy

I have always enjoyed science classes, helping people and watching sports, so I put them together and came up with this fascinating job. Working with high school athletes, you never know what you might see, which keeps you on your toes and makes each day different from the last. Seeing the look of amazement and hearing the gratitude from athletes as we help them stay on the field and get back to it after injury is a very satisfying feeling.
