Over the course of my career, I have gained much experience in both the clinical and didactic athletic training settings. I have provided event coverage for the NCAA DI Pre-National and National Cross Country races, Regional NCAA DII Softball tournament, and assisted with the NFL combines. Working as an athletic trainer at Indiana State and the University of Indianapolis allowed me to interact with diverse populations and sports. I enjoy continuing to work as a PRN athletic trainer for Community Health Network.
I’ve held teaching positions at Indiana State University and the University of Indianapolis, in addition to a graduate assistantship at Ball State University. I enjoy teaching courses related to Exercise Science, Athletic Training, and Sport Psychology.
In my spare time I…love to exercise—crossfit, run, and lift weights. I’ve been in a couple small crossfit competitions, completed a marathon, several half-marathons, and numerous smaller races. I also enjoy classic rock concerts. AC/DC and Def Leppard are my favorite.
