Ep. 166: Shauna Erickson-Hitting Pause and Restarting

The first time we talked with Shauna, she had a lot going on. She was in the middle of a PhD program while also runnign her online business at the time, MVMT Matters. In this follow up discussion, a lot has happened and Shauna was kind enough to share her story.

Shauna’s PhD program didn’t go quite as expected and that is the story she shares. She goes into detail about the feelings of being left alone when she was struggling to figure out her next steps and how the support she thought she might have, just never came. We also discuss the process that Shauna went through to make the decision to no further pursue her PhD. There was a lot that went into that decision and gives great insight into a large decision like that. 


Thanks Shauna for sharing so much.

I know Dr. Vardiman from my time in graduate school when he served as my advisor and we’ve been able to stay in touch ever since. Dr. Vardiman in this episode shares with us how he works to balance all the different apsects of AT he is involved in. Not only has he been full-time in an academic education program, he is doing research, service with the state and beyond and slo keeping up his clinical skils in a couple of areas. 

We discuss the timportance of being involved in so much to keep current in as many areas as he can but at time it comes down to priorities and deciding what you can do at the highest levels and adjusting other aspects. In addition to this conversation, Dr. Varidman talks about his time working with USA Track & Field and everything he learned in those experiences. He also talks about his most recent work with the Rangers at Fort Riley and the impact it has had on him.

The discusson on acrobatics is also fascinating as a new sport.

Ep. 160: Joshua Morales-The Secondary Setting: A Front Porch to AT

Joshua is an athletic trainer who works in the secondary setting and is a huge advocate of why it is so important in the athletic training profession. This is a sentiment I couldn’t agree with more as it is commonly the first interaction most patients have with an athletic trainer. This can be a huge opportunity to show the value of athletic training and have such an impact as people move on to collegiate athletics or if they interact with one in a clinic down the road.

Joshua talks about why he thinks the setting is one of (maybe the main) front porch to athletic training and why it is so important. He highlights a lot of the opportunities he sees in this setting as well as some of the challenges that come with it. There seem to be several on both sides but the opportunities win out. He also discusses what advice he would give someone heading into this setting and things that he has learned along the way. A great episode that highlights a vital part of the athletic training profession.



In This Episode:

+The importance of the secondary setting AT

+Challenges working in this setting

+Life balance in this setting

+How this setting impacts athletic training as a whole
