I am the Athletic Trainer for all athletic teams here at NHS. It keeps me busy all school year but I love working with the student-athletes that we have and have a blast seeing them succeed throughout the year and their careers. I do my best to get any athlete back to their sport when they get injured as soon and as safely possible. I also teach Sports Medicine at NHS and Health Science classes at ATC. I have had the pleasure to teach many great students and I can only hope that I have a positive influence on them in some way.
Some other interesting info about me. I am of the Muscogee Creek tribe from the great state of Oklahoma. I am a big fan of the Oklahoma State Cowboys, OKC Thunder and also the Atlanta Braves. I also love photography, art and cooking (mostly baking).
