Message to Parents
"In the athletic training facility at Phoenix High School I can assess, treat and rehabilitate injuries sustained during high school athletics. As a Certified Athletic Trainer, I am trained to care for most medical problems your student-athlete may experience while participating in sports. Please understand that my presence at every event is impossible due to the number of sports and athletes I am responsible for, but I will ALWAYS make my best effort to be present at as many events as possible.
Thank you for your trust in caring for and managing your student-athlete’s injury. I encourage you to reach out to me via Healthy Roster (preferable) or email/phone should your student-athlete require an injury assessment or if you need an update on a current injury. I will do my best to get back to you on the same business day or within 24 business hours."
