Westminster Christian Academy has been an incredible clinical experience over the past 8 months. My preceptor, Mercy Sports Medicine Athletic Trainer and SLU alum, Katherine Love MAT, ATC, has been an inspiring mentor and athletic trainer to look up to. I cherish the relationships I have made with school coaches, administrators and many student athletes over the past months. As an athletic training student at Westminster Christian Academy, my clinical knowledge, assessment and management skills, and my problem-solving skills have flourished.
Working with high school athletes is such a blessing because of their love for the sports they play. I have worked with a variety of injuries this year and each athlete works hard to complete the rehab protocols Katherine and I make for them, so they can get back on the field or court as soon as possible.
I am fortunate to be a part of the WCA family. Go Wildcats!
