Sports Medicine is a great class that bridges academia with clinical practice.  We are a CTE class, Career and Technical Education, that is over 50% hands-on experience and lab work.  This class is very unique in which you will learn anatomy, injuries, therapy, heat illness, and so much more.  By the end of Advanced Sports Medicine not only will you have the opportunity to be CPR and First Aide Certified, but you will also have the opportunity to become a Certified Personal Trainer. However, this is very different than becoming a Certified Athletic Trainer!

About Me

I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and found my passion for sports medicine and athletic training while attending Marana HS.  I knew from early on that I would go to Northern Arizona University to become an Athletic Trainer.  While there I took an internship with the University of Arizona to further my clinical skills.  After graduation I interned with WellAmerica, being outsourced as an Athletic Trainer to the local Fire Academy.  At the end of summer I moved across country to work for the University of Florida and eventually received my Master's of Science in Athletic Training and a Residency in Strength and Conditioning from them.  GO GATORS!  After spending a year honing my therapy skills and building a sports performance department at Ability Rehabilitation, I knew that it was time to move back home to Arizona.  

In Fall 2014 I accepted the position with Mesquite High School as the Head Athletic Trainer for all athletics teams, the Sports Medicine Teacher and the Athletic Training Student-Aide Advisor.  Over my career as an Athletic Trainer I have worked with many types of athletes with all different abilities, including high school, collegiate, professional, NFL, NBA, MLB, and Olympic athletes.  I am happy to be back in the beautiful state of Arizona and proud to be a part of this Wildcat Family.
