This will be my third year teaching Sports Medicine and working for RISD. I have been a Board Certified and Licensced Athletic Trainer for five years, and am excited to be spending my fifth year in this career at Rockwall High School. I am from Oklahoma and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Tulsa. I worked the past two years at Robert E. Lee (now known as Tyler Legacy) as an athletic trainer while obtaining my master's degree from the University of Miami.
Athletic training is a deep passion of mine and I am extremely excited to be teaching others about sports medicine and injuries.
This is an elective class for students.
