Each day as I walk into Westminster Christian Academy I am very excited to see what the day will bring. I am very fortunate to have been placed at Westminster Christian Academy for my second clinical experience for this experience will be invaluable for my future. Hilary Orf MAT, ATC at Westminster, has been there for 3 years now. She graduated from the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program and has been such a great mentor to me throughout this experience. She is very approachable, has a wealth of knowledge, and possesses great integrity. Hilary truly cares about her athletes and it shows through her practice. I have truly valued my time with Hilary for she has pushed me out of my comfort zone and has helped me improve my professional skills tremendously.
Westminster's spring sports have just started up so I am excited to experience and learn more. Fortunately, my time at Westminster is not up!
