“I have not failed, I have just found 10,000 things that do not work”, Thomas Edison. This quote by Thomas Edison accurately describes the last ten years of my life as thirty year old still feeling unsuccessful as person and unsatisfied with my career choice. I want to make a difference in someone’s life. I want to be that person that everyone noticed missing from a room or crowd. Not because I want to be popular, but because I want to be a positive influence and inspire others. It was two and half years ago I decided to make this happen and go back to school and major in sport medicine. I want to work with athletes who are just as driven as I am with specific goals in mind. I want to help these athletes reach these goals and win. I am going to be an Athletic Trainer and Sport Psychologist.
As a licensed Athletic Trainer and Sport Psychologist I will educate athletes on staying healthy, mentally and physically. I will evaluate injured athletes and plan their road to recovery for them. I will inspire them to cope and move forward with any road blocks they may encounter. As an athletic trainer I will wear many hats such as clinician, psychologist, and in some instances, strength coach. Athletes have only one thing in mind: winning. Young athletes with this driven personality will eventually become leaders. If I can help just one be the best, I have made a difference.
