What attracted you to Plymouth State’s graduate program? I was attracted by the curriculum and the location.
Where are you now employed? Hartford School District
How are you implementing knowledge gained during your program? I am using my athletic training skills as a freelance athletic trainer for the upper valley community. I am currently applying for positions in the private secondary school setting for the 2010-2011 school year.
What would you say to a student who is considering graduate school? I found Plymouth State University to be challenging and rewarding in many aspects. I came in as a non-traditional student with prior experience in the field of athletic training, but needed the curriculum requirements to sit for the National Athletic Trainer Association’s certification exam. The curriculum was substantial in the classroom setting and this prepared me for the certification exam and gave me the confidence needed to be a young professional. The clinical experience gave me an opportunity to utilize the skills that were taught in the classroom in a supervised setting. This gave students the opportunity to ask questions while interacting in a true athletic training setting. As a student I felt there was a comfort level with the supervising ACI’s that made the experience both positive and exciting.
