This admitted "carb-aholic" who loves Italian food says her interest in sports medicine began in high school.

"While playing basketball my freshman year, I tore my ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament). As a result of this injury, I had surgery and went through a lengthy rehab. Due to my initial interactions with my physical therapist, I went to college with the intentions of pursing physical therapy as a career; however, after taking an Introduction to Athletic Training course I fell in love with this profession and haven't looked back."
