"Certified athletic trainers have been on the front lines of concussion management from the very beginning. We are fortunate to have certified ATs in our high schools, community colleges and universities.


However, youth league, middle school, club sport, and adult athletes, fitness and recreation enthusiasts also get concussions.


ALL brains should have the same opportunity and access to the quickest and most complete recovery  possible.


I am the Athletic Trainer for anyone who sustains a concussion, because every brain is valuable.


And by offering provider education courses, I can help other healthcare clinicians update their knowledge and practice .


We are are all on the same team in ensuring best outcomes for our patients."

"After my car accident, I was suffering from post concussion issues and didn’t think I would be able to return to my job confidently as a fitness instructor, coach, or competitive athlete ever again. Life as I knew it seemed to have shattered. Because of Stacey, I have my life back to a pain-free and symptom free platform. She is kind, knowledgeable, and really values helping others. I am very thankful!"
