    Why I am a Teacher: Some of the most important people in my life through my middle and high school years were my coaches. They helped establish character principles and create positive and meaningful experiences with school that enabled me to reach educational goals. As I began to understand and appreciate their influences, I decided that I would emulate them and ideally affect my students and athletes in a similar manor.

    Heroes: My coaches were among my heroes because of how they shaped my life.

    Favorite Book: I enjoy books authored by successful coaches.

    Why I am a Teacher: Why did you want to become an athletic trainer? I wanted to become an athletic trainer because I wanted to work in medicine, but I wanted to do something different than seeing my patient for an hour and maybe not seeing them again. I love being a health care professional and working with my patients on a daily bases. Caring for the total patient is important! Medicine often becomes segmented and patients are viewed as an injury or illness instead of a person. ATs care for our patients in their entirety, not just their injury. I have the honor and privilege of working day in and day out with my patients. I get to watch them meet their goals, make improvements, and work their hardest to get stronger and heal. I get to be on the sidelines when they return to the sport they love, graduate, or return home from 2 months in the hospital. I get to be there for them in their worst moments and in their best.

    Favorite Book: Anything by Dan Brown
