For Tristan, her love of athletic training began in high school. She knew she wanted to work in the medical field, but also loved sports, so it was a natural fit. She was very involved in sports throughout her youth and suffered a few injuries that allowed her exposure to her athletic trainer. “I loved that there was an option outside of having someone tell me to take 4-6 weeks off. My athletic trainer helped me understand what was going on with my body and helped me get back to playing soccer sooner than predicted”.
Tristan, originally from the Seattle area, moved to Oregon to attend George Fox University’s athletic training program. Initially, she worked in the high school setting, but had always loved surgery. She then learned about athletic trainers working in the orthopedic physician setting and knew it was a role she would love to be in. She is thankful to have found a physician prior to joining O+F to take her on and teach her about the clinic and operating room settings. “I understand injuries so much better now and am a better athletic trainer both on the field and off because of it!”. Tristan was more than excited to be offered an opportunity at O+F because while she loves the clinic setting, she missed the opportunity to work on the field. “My favorite thing about O+F is the community involvement. I love that they have built such as strong presence within the community that I can also work various sporting events while representing this company.” Her passion will always be in the clinic and operating room, but O+F allows her the opportunity to “have it all”.
When she isn’t at work, she can be found on the sidelines of the Seahawks, working baseball for her alma mater, or hanging out with friends and family.
