"As an athletic trainer at DCHS, I work primarily with Florence High School sports teams, but I enjoy working with athletes of all ages and interests. I really believe that preventative care is the key to a great season and I strive to bring that with me to each team and individual I work with. In the event that injuries occur, our skilled team works together to send our athletes back as quickly and safely as possible."
