Bio: 

“I grew up on a farm in southwestern Wisconsin, just outside of a small town called South Wayne. I went to Black Hawk High School and didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life right away. I just knew that I liked medicine, sports and helping people. It was my dad who actually stumbled upon Athletic Training (AT) career information on the Internet. I thought, “Wow, that sounds like something I really would like to pursue.”

Shortly after that, I ended up choosing to go to University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point because I heard that they had a really good Athletic Training program. I received my Bachelors degree in 2012, and about five months later I took an Athletic Training position with Marshfield Clinic. I worked in the high school setting for about two and half years. In that time frame I worked with four schools outside of Marshfield and four schools in the Wisconsin Rapids area later on.  

 A few years ago my parents bought a small farm outside of Prairie du Chien. I really wanted to be closer to them, so when I saw that VMH had an Athletic Training opening with Westby High School I had to apply. I must say since I have started working for VMH, everyone has been very welcoming to me, and I really appreciate it! I can tell that VMH cares deeply about the community and the families that make it up, and I’m very happy to a part of that kind of health care philosophy.

Outside of athletic training I like helping my Dad on the farm. I also enjoy working out on a regular basis, paddle boarding on the backwaters of the Mississippi River, doing some single track mountain biking and cooking for family and friends."
