Colleen is Waring's Certified Athletic Trainer and Health Department Chair. She holds a bachelor’s degree in athletic training from Castleton University and a master’s degree in community health education from Merrimack College. She enjoys blending her world of sports medicine and athletics with the world of health and wellness and believes that the two go hand in hand. She aims to inspire all members of the community to prioritize their wellbeing, whether that means physically when she is working the sideline of a soccer game, or in all other aspects when she is teaching health class or talking with a student on campus. When she is not at Waring, you can find Colleen reading, swimming, pulling espresso shots at Ovedia Artisan Chocolates in Amesbury, walking her dog Pepper, listening to big band music from the 40s, road tripping to Vermont with her partner Cyle, and/or eating Margherita pizza. Colleen joined Waring in 2015.
