Best AT Moment: I get the most joy from educating patients about their particular injury and helping them feel at ease.  There is a lot of uncertainty associated with sustaining an injury.  What really makes me feel fulfilled is helping my patients understand what they’re dealing with, what they can expect, how I can help them, and how they can help themselves moving forward.

Quote/Lyric/Line That Sums Up Athletic Training For You: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
