2020-2021 Recipient

Rachel Scherbenske

My name is Rachel Scherbenske and I am from Chantilly, VA. I am a first year student in the Masters of Science in Athletic Training at the University of Virginia, where I also completed my undergraduate studies majoring in Kinesiology. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities and mentors I've had thus far in just the short time I've been involved in the AT world. Eventually, I hope to complete a residency and pursue a Doctorate degree. I'm not sure where I'll end up long-term but I'm planning on keeping my options open, and I am so excited to explore all the opportunities within the AT profession!
