After graduating high school in May of 2013, I attended Fort Lewis College (FLC) in Durango, CO where I received my Bachelors degree in Exercise Science with an emphasize in Exercise Physiology. I had an opportunity to do my senior capstone research on the Biomechanical Changes in Developing Runners which sparked my interest to continue my education in the sports medicine field. While in college I applied to Northern Arizona University (NAU) and was fortunate enough to be accepted into the Athletic Training Education Program. While at NAU, I was able to do two clinical rotations at Highland High School and Millennium High School, where I helped the head athletic trainers on and off the field and in their sports medicine classes. This past March, I was able to take my national certification exam and passed to become a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) and earned my Master's degree in May. This year, I will be teaching Earth and Space, Anatomy and Physiology, and Physics. I am looking forward to this school year in the classroom and with the athletics department.
