I first became interested in athletic training in high school after taking a sports medicine class and witnessing a basketball player sustain a compound tib-fib fracture on the court. This experience sparked a thirst for knowledge that I am still trying to quench to this day. I received my undergraduate degree in athletic training from Boise State University and am working toward my master’s degree from Fresno Pacific University. I currently live in Alameda, which is a small island across the bay from San Francisco. Being born and raised in Idaho, I love the diversity and opportunities the Bay area provides.
I work at Mills College in Oakland, California. As the Assistant Athletic Trainer, I oversee six sports: soccer, volleyball, cross country, tennis, swimming, and rowing. Mills College is an all-women’s Division III college which allows me to work in a great atmosphere. I love helping new athletes start or continue their journey of a happy active life.
When I am not working, I can usually be found outside soaking up the amazing weather this area provides. I enjoy body boarding, taking my dog to the park, and kick scootering around the various ocean view trails near my apartment. If I am not at the beach or in the sun, I am probably finding new projects to create or perusing various craft fairs, since I am an avid crafter.
