I am a graduate of Iowa State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education, a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist of the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Over my thirty-three year professional career, I have worked as a Licensed Athletic Trainer in high schools, colleges, hospitals, and private practice clinicals. For the past twenty-five years, I have had the privilege of being the Director of Sports Medicine Services for Physical Therapy Specialists Clinic.
I love my profession and that I get to help athletes achieve their goal of returning to activities that bring them joy. Whether it’s a middle school basketball player, high school runner, high school football player, adult CrossFit athlete or a golfer well into their forties, helping them return to an activity they live and breathe is the very definition of rewarding.
