Reason for Becoming an Athletic Trainer

Growing up I always loved participating in, and being around sports.  I also enjoyed helping people.  A family friend once told me that if I liked being around sports, I should become an Athletic Trainer.  The idea stuck.  I have been able to combine my love of sports with my desire to help those who need it.
