Athletic Trainer at Waverly High School in Waverly, N.Y., and a tech at ProCare Physical Therapy in Athens, Pa.

When Clarice Tice entered the workforce, she felt confident in her abilities to succeed as a result of the strong athletic training background she gained as an undergraduate at Waynesburg University.

“Having the many different opportunities Waynesburg afforded me, such as clinicals, really equipped me for my job,” said Tice. “Being able to complete athletic training hours at the local high school for a semester was extremely helpful.”

Employed by ProCare Physical Therapy, Tice instructs a variety of patients on proper exercise. In the afternoon, she travels to Waverly High School where she works every practice and game for the middle and high school students.

As a former student who was heavily involved in extracurricular activities on campus, Tice believes that participating in these opportunities was very beneficial for her career.

“Make the most of the time you have at Waynesburg and take all the opportunities and learning experiences you can,” said Tice. “They will help shape and mold you as a professional.”

Intern, Pro Performance RX in Morgantown, W.Va. 

Hayden Giuliani’s summer internship with Pro Performance RX, a regional leader for fitness training, sport training, rehabilitation and overall health training, was a natural fit. After observing there as part of her Waynesburg University athletic training clinical rotation, she proved to the training staff that she could succeed in a summer setting as well. 

“Being able to put a client through a workout on my own and see her progress from week to week was the best part,” Giuliani said. “It felt like I had proven myself, and all the work was worth it.”

Giuliani, who serves as the vice president of Waynesburg’s Athletic Training Student Association and who plays varsity basketball and participates in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, said that she entered the internship with a “very good foundation of knowledge” on strength and conditioning.

“Being an athletic training major gives me a step above exercise science majors at other colleges in some ways, because I must learn more about how the total body works and what can affect it,” she said. “I ended up making a name for myself with all the trainers and stood the test of being independent as a trainer, which was extremely encouraging and beneficial to my future.”
