Her Contribution to Our Profession

“It was my fortune or misfortune to become an athletic trainer when I did. I did not know it at the time but there were battles to be fought on equity and social justice issues, especially for women... I submitted a proposal for a “Commission to Study the Status of Women in the NATA”. That proposal was approved by the NATA Board of Directors and became a Task Force on Women in Athletic Training in 1995 and a Committee on Women in Athletic Training in 1997. It was the opportunity to form this Task Force/Committee which finally gave me the opportunity to serve, to begin to develop the leadership skills I was going to need soon enough.”
