Athletic Trainer

  • The Phoenix Central School District has partnered with SOS for the services of a certified athletic trainer. The athletic trainer gives medical coverage for all athletes and collaborates with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, evaluation, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions to minimize the loss of competitive time for athletes.


    Training Credentials


    • Cal State University Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (December 2016); MS Kinesiology option in Sports Medicine and Injury Studies
    • Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY (May 2013); BS Athletic Training
    • NATA/BOC Certified Athletic Trainer (June 2013)

    I graduated from Ithaca College in 2013 with a BS in Athletic Training and a minor in Sport Psychology where I was a member of the swim team all four years. From there I returned to California to pursue my Masters degree at Cal State University Long Beach. While back in California I had the opportunity to work at Pasadena City College, Alhambra High School, Disney and with the LA Kings. Those experiences have shaped my clinical practice to emphasize the importance of education and prevention. I focus on helping create a knowledgeable athlete that wants to take an active role in their overall health.
