I'm finishing my 5th year and final year with SGP! I will soon transition into becoming a full-time mommy. I hope to become a part time instructor and get involved with more committee work. I started my athletic training journey as a freshman in high school and it led me to many opportunities in the athletic training profession that has molded me into who I am today.
-AA in Athletic Training from Tyler Junior College
-BS in Athletic Training from UT Arlington
-MS in Athletic Training from Texas State University
I have a license in massage therapy and love utilizing that skill in my rehabilitation of athletic injuries. I served on the Life Balancing Committee for 5 years, 2 of which I was the committee chair. I have a passion for this profession and can’t wait to get involved again. I serve as a clinical preceptor for UT Arlington and assist with various virtual lessons with multiple universities around the country. Not only has this profession taken me many places, it led me to my awesome husband Richard Maceyra Jr. who is also an athletic trainer. We have two pitty pups that we adore and a little one due in August. My job is athletic training, but my mission is to love and help each person I come in contact with.
The North Texas Athletic Trainers' Society was established in 2000 as a social, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the communication, continuing education and professionalism of the North Texas athletic training community.
With a strong emphasis on educating students, NTATS supports the future of the athletic training profession.
