I graduated from Duquesne University with a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training. Now I am a certified Athletic Trainer. My undergraduate classes covered various medical conditions, course of treatment, and referral. This includes glucose testing. My classes also focused on orthopedic injury evaluation and treatment.
I am now a first year graduate student at Chatham University in their Doctor of Occupational Therapy program.
I have volunteer experience as an athletic training student for the Winter Special Olympics, as well as over 1,000 clinical experience hours working with middle school, high school, and college level athletes.
I work as a caregiver for In home care agencies for the aging population. I also worked as a CampAIM counselor for two summer for the physical support group. This gave me experience caring and planning activities for a group of campers with autism and Cerebral Palsy.
