Atlanta Falcons: Season Long Intern 2001-2002

"I believe the opportunity to work with an athletic training staff at the professional level was invaluable. One of my original goals as a student athletic trainer was to work at the professional level with either baseball of football. This experience allowed me to see what being an athletic trainer in the NFL is like on a day to day basis. I hope that one day I have the opportunity to return to work in the NFL."
