Information on Courses Taught
Currently, I teach Safety and Management of Health Emergencies and Basic Emergency and Injury Care Management.
My responsibilities as an athletic trainer are supervision of the athletic training students, care, prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, and some administrative duties. I love outdoor activities like hiking, biking, canoeing, walking, and kayaking. Although I have a very active lifestyle, I can get completely involved in a good book or movie. My family (husband and three dogs) keeps me busy with fun activities during my free time.
