Liz is currently working as an athletic trainer at Waianae High School in Hawaii and has some great stories to share from her path and the reasons why she chose her career in athletic training.
Liz actually grew up in Wyoming. Her upbringing was quite different from Hawaii life!

Growing up, she played many sports and always considered herself an athlete. It was in college when she tore her ACL just before beginning her first track season.

Liz has a lot of inspiration to share, and her enthusiasm is infectious. Listen in on this episode to soak up some of Liz’s words of wisdom and the story of her journey. Especially if you are an athlete, an athletic trainer or thinking of building an athletic career, this episode is not to miss!
