This week the NATA’s national convention will be in St. Louis. I will head there on Tuesday and this will be my third time attending the national convention, second time in St. Louis. That’s not bad considering this is my 5th year in the profession. 3 of 5 isn’t terrible! But, why do people attend convention? Read the rest of this entry »

I have many things to be thankful on this Thanksgiving. Way too many to truly name, but I’m going to certainly give it a shot!

  • I’d be in trouble if I didn’t mention them first: my parents and my family. The support over the last few years while I have worked to build my career has been amazing. IMG_0519
  • The administration at Bishop Lynch High School for believing in me and giving me the ability to make the move to Texas to become their new Head Athletic Trainer this summer. The staff, parents, and kids for welcoming me into the Bishop Lynch community.
  • My mentors over the years. The advice and encouragement has made me into the Athletic Trainer that I am today. They are there by my side when I need them the most!
  • The #ATtalk and #AT4ALL Twitter family. We are creating change in sports safety. And we will not give up until we complete our mission!
  • My wo47a4cf35b3127cce98566ef8b44b00000015100AasXLNm5as2Qgnderful assistant, Sarah, and team physician, Dr. Moore. They have made our first fall season as a staff a success! The three of us work together so well in order to achieve athlete safety for our Friar athletes.

Every Athlete Deserves an Athletic Trainer.

Passion and Plan

February 6, 2014

Last month, on a recommendation from my friend Kristi Messina, I ordered Jon Acuff’s book Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Dream Job. Unfortunately it has taken me longer to read this book than I originally thought. When I first started it, I was reading 20-30 pages at a time. But with everything else going on too, that dropped off. But tonight I picked the book up again and read a topic that I want to talk about right away.. Read the rest of this entry »
