“I am an athletic trainer, and I wanted to stay in athletics but move to the administrative level. Becoming an athletic director is my No. 1 goal. I looked at the courses that Ohio University offered, and every course looked interesting and is something that I would directly use. Even now I could apply it, and later on when I move on to athletic administrator or athletic director it will be perfect.”
