“As a certified athletic trainer at DCHS I primarily work with student athletes and athletic programs at Kingsford High School however, oversee the care of several other Dickinson County athletes. Having worked at the collegiate level for several years, it is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to work with and care for individuals in a community that has given me such a solid foundation. In collaboration with an entire sports medicine healthcare continuum, we are able to offer one of the most progressive and safe programs in our region. We aim to provide timely, quality care in order to return an athlete in order to accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship and good health”.

“As an Athletic Trainer for DCHS I provide sports medicine services to student athletes at Florence High School along with providing coverage for area community events. I really enjoy working in a small town environment, it allows me to build close relationships with the athletes and the community. I have found through my experience that these relationships are essential in providing outstanding care and producing a positive outcome. Our goal here is to prevent injuries. However, when an injury does occur we provide the best care possible to return the athletes back to competition as quickly and as safely as possible."
