Senior Rachael Hearn’s injury as a swimmer helped her find her
path at Berry.
The exercise science major has enjoyed sports since she was
little, beginning with soccer and ice-skating. Rachael swam in middle school,
high school and her freshman year of college until she was injured. After her
injury, she found herself in the training room every day observing Berry’s
athletic trainers and eventually realized that she wanted to work in the sports
medicine field as a certified athletic trainer.
Athletic trainers work under a physician, and may attend practices
and games in case an injury occurs. They can also be qualified to oversee minor
rehabilitation. There are many job tasks that a certified athletic trainer can
perform, including first aid duties such as taping ankles and wrists.
Rachael has worked with Berry’s tennis and baseball athletes and
is now helping football players. She interned this summer at a chiropractic and
physical therapy clinic, where she was able to put into practice the education
she has received at Berry.
“Most people use their internships to learn new things. I was able
to take what I have already learned and apply it, so that was exciting for me,”
In addition to her job at Berry, Rachael also works as a personal
trainer at a gym in Rome, Ga. She has approximately nine clients, whom she
helps with diet accountability and workout plans.
After graduation, Rachael plans to attend graduate school at Texas
A&M University or University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
