Sports Perf. - Honduras
Karisa, the assistant tour director, is a year-long intern athletic trainer in the Sports Performance Department at Athletes in Action. She is from Colorado, and she graduated from Northwestern College (Iowa) in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in athletic training and physical education.
As a student, she had the opportunity to study sport and body culture in the Czech Republic. During her senior year, she interned with the Northwestern College wrestling team for a season.
Recently, she enjoyed working with AIA’s post-college men’s basketball team this past fall and a youth baseball league this spring. In August, she will begin graduate school at Northern Illinois University where she will also serve as a teaching graduate assistant. Ultimately, Karisa is passionate about using the platform of athletic training and teaching to seize opportunities to encourage others as a result of building an authentic relationship with them.
When asked about the tour, Karisa said, "I am excited to see how God will bring our team together in a way that will allow us to learn from each other and be a blessing to the people that we interact with in Honduras."
