MS, LAT, PES, CES, Mentor, Injury Prevention Specialist
I grew up in Pennsylvania and went to college at King’s College to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree I went on to continue my education and pursue a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training at the California University of Pennsylvania. While doing this I worked as a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer with the cross country team, men’s and women’s track and field, women’s tennis and assisted with the football team.
After pursuing a Master’s Degree I worked as a summer intern for the Cleveland Browns. I learned a lot during this experience and was very thankful for everything that I took away from this. I later pursued a seasonal athletic trainer experience again with the Cleveland Browns.
After the NFL experience, I went on to work as an Industrial Athletic Trainer and covered mostly Frito Lay warehouses, while also covering some construction sites and a window plant when needed. I have been an Industrial AT for several years now and am excited to continue working in the industrial setting with ATP.
Honesty, Kindness and Compassion
“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”
I am the IPS at Aldi Hinckley. I prevent aches and discomforts, evaluate team members lifting techniques, and make recommendations on how they can change their form in order to make the job easier on their body. I also assist with the mental aspect of life and the job, as someone which the team members can talk to about stressful situations at work or in their personal life.
Improper lifting techniques which lead to soreness is something that I want to fix. Many selectors do not know proper lifting techniques and are performing these techniques many times a day. My goal is to teach all employees proper lifting techniques when working.
I enjoy working at ATP. My co-workers are amazing and will help me achieve all my professional goals.
