In this episode, I talk with an old friend, Certified Athletic Trainer and Iron Man finisher, Olivia Zander, ATC, LAT. We discuss the responsibilities of the Athletic Trainer and where Athletic Training fits into the spectrum of sport performance. We also talk about how Coaches can, and should, utilize these professionals to get the most out of their athletes. In addition to all of this, we reminisce about traumatic head injuries that can happen at running camp and how important it is to being open to potential shifts and changes in your career. Olivia currently works for Athletico Physical Therapy in the Chicagoland area and is also a full-time nursing student at Loyola University Chicago in an Accelerated Bachelor of Nursing program.
