    Profile:
     
    Celebratory Best Practice:
    I try to treat  every athlete as if they are one of my own children. How would I feel if it was MY son who was hurting or injured? Or who just needed some advice and had no one else to talk to but me. I hope to help everyone who comes to me.
     
    Instructional Best Practice:
    Although I'm not a teacher here, I do try to educate our athletes as much as possible. When they are injured, I explain and show them exactly what went wrong and how it can be treated. I'm a big believer in athletes knowing how their bodies work, how they can be healed, and what they can do to make themselves better at their sport, or return to play after an injury.
