What is an Athletic Trainer?
Athletic trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize patient and client activity and participation in athletics, work and life. The practice of athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination and diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, sub-acute, and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize subsequent impairments, functional limitations, disability, and societal limitations.

Athletic trainers are educated and trained to examine patients/clients who have acute, sub-acute, or chronic musculoskeletal disorders and medical conditions and to arrive at a differential diagnosis regarding suspected pathologies. Based on this assessment, athletic trainers determine the impairments, functional limitations and the disabilities that result from these injuries and illnesses. Effective examination requires a thorough understanding of musculoskeletal and systemic anatomy, and the physiological response to injury and illness.
Examination is an ongoing process focused on meeting the changing needs of the patient/client. Athletic trainers recognize when consultation with other health care providers is necessary and refer accordingly.

After graduating from Rogers High School in 1983, I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Business/Kinesiology from Texas A&M University in 1990.  While at Texas A&M, I worked as a student athletic trainer for Aggie Football and Men’s/Women’s Track &Field.  Upon graduating, I took a position at Brownsboro High School.  After 1 year, I decided to return to school, Graduate Studies at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.  While at UAB, I was the Graduate Assistant athletic trainer for Football, Women’s Volleyball, Men’s Soccer, and Men’s/Women’s Golf.  I received my state of Texas Licensure during my time at UAB, in 1992.

During my career, I have worked in 7 different school districts, ranging in size from 2A-6A.  I have worked at 2 different Universities and I spent 4 years in Professional Basketball, with 2 of those years spent as an athletic training intern with the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA.  I have twice been selected to be an athletic trainer for All-Star games, including the 2011 TPSCA All-Star games held in Ft. Worth, and for the GHABCA baseball games held at Rice University in 2013.  I also was the athletic trainer for a summer baseball team, Woodlands Strykers of the Texas Collegiate League for 4 seasons.
