Teaching Area(s): Athletic Training

I left Mount Union as an undergrad and was able to work at the Division I level because of the diverse background attained here. I often tell my students, “The day you stop learning is the day you should prepare to fail.”

Careers

Recognized by the American Medical Association as allied health professionals, athletic trainers specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic-related injuries and illnesses. Through education and the dissemination of information, athletic trainers also play a role in injury prevention. In light of this role and the current concern about rising healthcare costs, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment of athletic trainers is projected to grow 37 percent through 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations.
