Why did you become an Athletic Trainer?

I had a bad soccer injury when I was 11 years old that resulted in surgery, 6 months on crutches, and 1 year of physical therapy before I was allowed to run or jump again. While it was definitely a tough time, I remember there was a great sports medicine team of Physical Therapists and Doctors who helped me get back into playing soccer, a sport that I still participate in today. When I entered college, I knew I wanted to do something in Sports Medicine to help others with their injuries but wasn’t sure exactly what that would look like. I spent some time shadowing in a PT Clinic, a Doctor’s Office, and in the Athletic Training Room at my college. By the end of my Junior year, I knew I wanted to go to graduate school for Athletic Training.

Without sharing any PHI of course, what is your most memorable moment as an Athletic Trainer?

My first weekend at my first full-time job, I had to call EMS twice in a span of two hours for a couple pretty gnarly injuries—one of them being a tibial plateu fracture (see attachment for photo of X-ray).

What advice would you give others, either in the profession or considering becoming an Athletic Trainer?

For those considering becoming an Athletic Trainer, make sure you spend time shadowing someone in the field enough that you understand what you’re getting into before you commit. It’s a very rewarding job but it does come with some unique challenges. For those in the profession: when the going gets tough, remember that we grow stronger through the struggle. It’s not just muscles that grow stronger with resistance; don’t let your spirit atrophy.

What do you feel people outside of your profession should know about Athletic Trainers

Athletic Trainers are there to worry about the sports injuries so coaches & parents don’t have to. They are sports medicine professionals trained to respond quickly in emergency situations who also are skilled athletic injury prevention, evaluation, & rehabilitation. If your school doesn’t have an Athletic Trainer on-staff, ask your administration: “Why not?"

What is the key to being successful in Athletic Training?

Always remember that you’re treating a person, not just an injury.

To hear from Ashley herself about her experiences in the athletic training field, check out her responses below:

Why did you become an Athletic Trainer?

I became a student aide my sophomore year of high school and couldn't get enough of the profession from there. I love the atmosphere, the involvement in health care, and the joys of athletic training.

Without sharing any PHI of course, what is your most memorable moment as an Athletic Trainer?

The biggest wins tend to stick in your mind, regarding both games and athletes. I worked a football game a few months ago that I will absolutely never forget. Those first few "big injuries" as an independent AT also stick as well. Mostly I remember the gratitude of so many athletes, college and high school, for supporting them and helping them to succeed. I have 2 "first homerun" softballs on my desk, one collegiate and one high school, from kids who suffered through injuries and found success on the field. Those two balls are more important to me than my two conference championship rings!

What advice would you give others, either in the profession or considering becoming an Athletic Trainer?

Go with your gut instincts. This profession is fueled by various passions: for sport, for health, for success. Each and every AT I know genuinely LOVES athletic training. I speak to a lot of high school kids regarding future goals and professions and I tell them all, "you will know if this is the field for you" and if you love it, stick with it. It's one of the most rewarding fields you will ever experience.

What do you feel people outside of your profession should know about Athletic Trainers?

We do a lot more than distribute water at football games and show people how to work out! We have invested numerous years, and many hours of continuing education, on our professional knowledge and we are much more than what you see on TV.

What is the key to being successful in Athletic Training?

Staying fresh, staying involved, and enjoying your setting, whether its high school outreach, collegiate, professional, industrial or clinical.

Bridging Information Gaps in High Schools

Healthy Roster

This update comes from Rob Mottice, our Customer Success Manager...

This past fall, we were introduced to a high school in Louisiana having trouble properly communicating athlete injury amongst staff within the school's athletic department. The Athletic Trainer found it challenging to find time to compile reports and share them in a timely manner to coaches and athletic directors - making for a tenuous situation within the athletic department. With a variety of people using different non-secured methods of sharing sensitive athlete health information, it was getting harder and harder for everyone to agree on the best way to relay information about the school's athletes. 

As Healthy Roster was integrated into the Athletic Trainer's workflow - the gaps started being bridged. The school's Athletic Trainer started sharing her use of the Healthy Roster App with the staff at the school and started inviting them to join. This gave them access to the info they needed in real time - while keeping the athlete's info safe and secure. Once the school's staff started seeing how easy it was to use Healthy Roster - the situation remedied itself. Athletic Staff had the info they were seeking - instantly. No more reports were needed. Athletes were kept safer. Everyone was in the loop. 

Does this situation sound familiar? If you are logging injuries for your athletes - is this information being relayed to the parents/coaches in a safe and secure way? Healthy Roster makes it simple and safe. Let us know how we can help!

Why did you become an Athletic Trainer/Sports Medicine Director?

Long story short, I injured my wrist in high school and didn't have an athletic trainer in my high school so I saw my primary care. They took an X-ray and prescribed PT. I went on to play field hockey in college and when my athletic trainer evaluated it, he referred me to our team Orthopedist who diagnosed me with a scaphoid non-union. I was so frustrated that it was missed and ended up requiring surgery. After working with my athletic trainers rehabbing my wrist, I started work I with them for my work study job and got hooked! I knew going into college that I loved science and medicine, helping people and athletics, so the field was a perfect match.


Without sharing any Patient Health Information, what is your most memorable moment as an Athletic Trainer?

Watching a student's time back on the court after a significant tibia-fibula fracture dislocation. I was so proud of their hard work in rehab, determination and fearlessness.


What advice would you give others, either currently in the profession or considering becoming an Athletic Trainer?

Have fun and keep your sense of humor. There will be hard days and frustrating times but if the athletes see you loving what you do, it builds their confidence and makes their struggle seem a bit easier to swallow. And don't be afraid to admit when you don't know - use your resources (doctors, ATs, PTs, etc)!


What do you feel people outside of your profession should know about your profession?

We are qualified medical professionals and we are great resources for our athletes - both for their injuries and for their doctors for further insight into what is going on with an athlete.


What is the key to being successful in the world of athletic training and sports medicine?


#1 Balance. Balance is something I'm admittedly still working on. It's hard to leave our work at the office, especially when things aren't going how you would like.  And #2 is being a lifelong learner. Our field changes so rapidly that staying on top of those changes is important. And it goes back to using your resources and learning from experiences and the people around you and especially what didn't go well.
