Welcome to Health Science Technology! I am excited to get rolling this year and meet all of you!
While this is my second year teaching Health Science Technology here at THS, I had worked at THS for the the 9 years previous to teaching as a Certified Athletic Trainer taking care of all our athletes medical needs. I traded in my gym shoes for dress shoes, and I am thrilled to see what all the year has in store for us in the classroom! I teach Medical Terminology, Principles of Health Science, Health Science Clinical Internship, and the Registered Dental Assistant Course. I am also an adviser for the THS HOSA Club for Future Health Professionals.
I have been a nationally board certified and licensed athletic trainer for the past 12 years. Along the way I have worked at both the collegiate level at the University of Houston and the secondary level here at THS. Being a collegiate athlete myself, the combination of my love of sports and medicine made athletic training a perfect fit for me. However, my desire to equip students with the knowledge and passion they need to find their own path in the medical field led me to teaching heath science. I hope to be able to aide you see how wonderful the healthcare field can be and give you the tools you need to be a successful part of it if you so desire!
