I grew up in Petaluma, California. When I was in high school I played soccer and I danced. I always knew I liked sports and wanted to somehow be involved in it for a career. I decided to take our Sports Medicine class with our Athletic Trainer and decided that I wanted to be a Certified Athletic Trainer.
After graduating from high school I went straight to Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) where I worked hands-on with all of our sports teams. I graduated in 2014 from SRJC with my Associates of Science in Kinesiology Pre-Athletic Training and in Natural Sciences. From there, I went to San Jose State University and worked with different high schools and NCAA College sports teams. My favorite was working with SJSU Football. I had the opportunity to travel with them and work all of their home games.
After graduating from SJSU in 2017, I started my career working at a sports therapy clinic, where I was the Head Field Athletic Trainer for Santa Clara University Club sports. When I wasn’t with SCU, I worked in the clinic where I had the opportunity to work with athletes from San Jose State, San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo, US Men’s National Soccer Team, San Francisco 49ers, Atlanta Falcons, and Las Vegas Raiders.
After 4 amazing years, I decided I wanted to work with a high school, and now I am currently the Head Athletic Trainer for Saratoga High School. When I’m not on campus, you can find me working as a Clinical Assistant/ ATC at Golden State Orthopedics and Spine where I get to help the doctors with patients, fitting braces, and casting.
I have a fun and excited pup named Winston who gets to come with me to work everyday and spend his days sleeping or playing with our student athletes. I love working out, cooking and taking Winston on walks or to the dog park. In my free time, I try to get outside and enjoy the little things.
