You can find me on Twitter @BellaMaria79. I am continuously volunteering at the state level with the North Texas Athletic Trainers Society’s (, annual injury symposia with the high school student programming committee.  Currently, I am awaiting formal approval to begin a term on the Southwest Athletic Trainers’ Association’s ( Secondary School Athletic Trainer Committee.  Being on this committee, I will be working to help other high school athletic trainers achieve their goals and assist with the resources to do so. Now as a new head athletic trainer for Richardson High School, a new journey has just begun. I’m excited for what the future holds!
