Ep. 25: Cody Tesch-ATC in Fire Setting

Emerging settings in athletic training continue to evolve and in some cases they have ‘emerged’ (listen to the episode). Cody Tesch is on the front end of one of those settings, fire services. Cody is one of a handful of full-time athletic trainers that are dedicated to the service and care of a city’s fire fighter services and the steps Cody has made and where things are going are set to make an impact. 

In this episode we talk about what exactly Cody’s role in this type of setting is. We get very deep into how it has taken some effort for Cody to establish himself as a resource for this group and had to fight some long-held beliefs. Cody has had to work to gain the trust of the fire fighters and show them that he is there to help, not hold them out. We also discuss how Cody is advocating for the profession to demonstrate the skills necessary to workman’s compensation cases and beyond. So much to take away from this episode.

Episode Highlights:
+Getting started in this unique setting
+Establishing relationships and rapport
+Demonstrating value and worth
+Treating the tactical athlete

Ep. 24: Joanne Kinyon-BOD ATC

A collaborative medical model is ideal in so many settings. It takes a lot to get it there though. Not only do you have to have the resources to make it happen you have to find the right people that want to work together. In this episode we get to talk to Joanne Kinyon, an athletic trainer, who works at Bishop O Dowd High School. While BOD is not your “typical” high school the model they have established can be applied a lot of places.


We talk about ideas on how schools on almost any level can look at nutrition, strength and conditioning and monitoring. All these factors can be looked at and set up for little to no cost. The creative ways that BOD has implemented multiple processes that allow for the entire staff to help the athletes not only achieve a high level of performance but also to recovery and reduce injury risk. Great take away ideas from this episode. Enjoy.


Episode Takeaways:
+Implementable strategies
+Nutrition and monitoring

Ep. 22: Ryan Gaffney-AT Advocate: Athlete to Business

Ryan Gaffney isn’t an athletic trainer but he does think the profession is one that deserves more attention and credit for what they bring to the table. We connected with Ryan after he tagged us in a post about ATCs in the industrial setting. Ryan played hockey in college and in juniors and had a couple great interactions with athletic trainers that helped him out through some pretty significant injuries.

We also talk about the importance of athletic trainers in the business and industrial setting. Ryan has seen this importance with a previous guest, Andrea Dosedla, but also as a small business owner is seeing the importance for himself. We talk about ideas and mindsets that athletic trainers need to highlight to break into this setting and have a major impact. Enjoy.



Take Aways:
+ATCs can basically do it all and the broad/general knowledge is an asset.
+ATC Skillset can fit in great in wellness programs.
+Need to focus on data and outcome measures. Show you're worth.
+Get out there and communicate
+Educate (may even brag) on the profession

Ep. 19: Austin Fitzpatrick-1st Year MSAT

In this episode we sit down with one of our own hosts, Austin Fitzpatrick. Austin is working his way through his second year in his MSAT program. We sat down to reflect on how the first year went and what Austin has taken away from the first year and how he believes all the experiences have come together to form his program.

We also revisit Austin’s responses to our (modified) AT Chat questions. We wanted to see what changes might have come about since Austin has been more engulfed into the athletic training profession. If you’d like to hear his original responses, please check out Episode 1. Enjoy.
