This semester I have had the opportunity to gain clinical experience at Kirkwood High School with preceptor Briana Lakebrink, ATC. It is safe to say that Briana has done a phenomenal job of showing me the ropes of an athletic trainer in a high school setting and teaching me how to use my skills outside of the classroom. From the after-school rush to late night football games, I have learned so much from her including: how to handle heat illness during the hot days in early August to new taping techniques to managing concussions and so much more.
I look forward to these next few months at Kirkwood as I continue to grow and be challenged in new ways every day.
