Part of my vision when I created Specialty Athletic Training was to provide fun, on-campus internship opportunities for the students of Lewis & Clark College. Every semester we have students apply to serve as Peer Mentors and work along side our personal trainers providing instruction and motivation to our clients during their workouts. Please help us welcome this semester's Peer Mentors; Alex Jones, Kaitlin Mathewson, and Liz Growdon. You can learn more about them by reading their individual bios here.
