Hello! I was recently married and am now Mrs. Hallsmith :) I am originally from Virginia Beach, VA but live in Northern Virginia now with my husband. I went to George Mason University to receive a Bachelors in Science in Athletic Training and a Master's in Exercise, Fitness, and Health Promotion. I have worked for the ACHIEVES Project at George Mason University for the past 3 years helping PWCS in their concussion education and injury surveillance. Currently I am the project manager for our current grant, Middle School ACHIEVES Project, which allows me to be the athletic trainer at Saunders. This is my second year here and I am so grateful to have this opportunity. I love working with your athletes helping them to stay healthy while playing their sport! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding sport safety or injuries or you can always find me on the sideline at all practices and games :)
We currently have 9 athletic trainers in the Middle School ACHIEVES grant, each working at a different PWCS middle school. We have worked together to create sport safety newsletters throughout the year, please click on the topics below to access them.
