Student Bio:
I joined the DVATSLC because I wanted to learn about Athletic Training beyond the classroom. I wanted to learn more about the governmental aspects, promotion of the profession, and everything else that district leadership does to improve our profession. I also saw this as a great opportunity for personal and professional growth. Serving a leadership role among the DVATSLC I had to be organized, on time, and be well versed in everything that we were doing in order to correctly answer/direct questions to whomever they needed to be direct to. Being on the DVATSLC I was part creating agenda’s for meetings, leading meetings, utilizing parliamentary procedure to properly go through a business meeting. These traits and responsibilities among many others gained throughout serving on the DVATSLC will serve me well in the future as I continue my journey towards becoming an Athletic Trainer and any leadership positions that I may encounter along the way. Following graduation this upcoming August I will continue with more schooling, and hopefully someday be able to take Athletic Training back to the small rural communities of Nebraska.

Student Biography and Experiences:
I joined the District 5 SLC to see what type of an impact I can make on the profession of Athletic Training as well as to learn more about the behind the scenes and governmental affairs.  I want to make the most of my future career as an Athletic Trainer, which I feel will be improved by my experiences with the SLC. I am excited to what I am able to contribute to District 5.
This summer I will be completing a short internship with USA Baseball in North Carolina. Following my short period of time in North Carolina, I will be completing an internship with the Indiana Hoosier football team. I am very excited to gain experience at both of these locations. After these internships, I will return to Omaha to finish the final year of my graduate studies.
My ideal future in Athletic Training would be working in either a higher level college or professional setting with either football or basketball.
