 “As a proud alumna of the Springfield College Athletic Training Program, my four years here resulted in far more than a degree; I gained life-long relationships and mentors, and a devotion to the Humanics philosophy which has shaped my professional career path. I returned to this institution to work because we place an enormous value on student-centered teaching and learning, which is very important to me as an educator.”

“As a practicing athletic trainer, I feel that teaching motivates me to be on the cutting edge in sports medicine. Essentially, teaching makes me a better athletic trainer and being a practicing athletic trainer makes me a better teacher. I also enjoy being a preceptor and mentor for students in their clinical fieldwork.”

“My athletic training career began almost 20 years ago when I started my undergraduate degree at Springfield College. In all that time, the focus hasn't changed—the development of the student, both inside the classroom and out, is what drew me back here. Now as a full time staff member, I get to contribute to the development of the next generation of athletic trainers. This is a unique college, and the opportunities provided the students here are unlike any other school in the country.”

“While the historical legacy of the Springfield College Athletic Training Program is what drew me to the institution, the level of excellence the students exhibit is truly what sparked my passion for teaching.  I have developed a pragmatic approach to teaching centered on establishing transferable knowledge and skills from the classroom to the clinic. The value of experiential learning through real-world applications allows for our students to grow as health care professionals while socializing into the field of athletic training. The athletic training program provides students with instruction from active leaders in the field at the state, regional, national, and international levels, each exhibiting different areas of expertise and interest.”
