She is also an Athletic Trainer at the Upward Star Center where she provides coverage for the facility’s adult sports leagues, volleyball and basketball travel teams, and all Upward Star Center events.
Stefanie graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from Florida Southern College and a Master of Science in Youth Development Leadership from Clemson University. From 2012-14, she was a Graduate Assistant for the Clemson men’s and women’s track and field and cross country teams.
“I am excited to get back onto the field supporting a smaller, Christ-centered community,” Stefanie said. “I am looking forward to helping athletes achieve their greatest potential on and off the field, while keeping them as safe and healthy as possible.”
