Stephen Herman, now in his 7th year as an Assistant Athletic Trainer at Landon, began working in Athletic Training as a senior at Patrick Henry HS in Roanoke, Va. While at Wake Forest University, he worked as a student athletic trainer for three years with Women's Soccer, Women's Volleyball, but predominantly spent his time with the Deacon Football program.
After graduation, he was certified by the National Athletic Trainer Board of Certification and worked for a year as an Athletic Trainer at Davidson College where he managed the overall health care of the Women's Soccer and Baseball teams. In his first year of grad school at UNC Greensboro, he was the primary Athletic Trainer for Baseball, and then #1 ranked Spartan Men's Soccer team. The second year of grad school, Mr. Herman worked with the Greensboro College Women's Soccer/Basketball/Softball, and the Men's and Women's Tennis Teams until he made his way to Landon in the Fall of 2006. In the summer of 2010, he completed a 200 hour Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician course near Yosemite National Park.
In his free time, Mr. Herman loves to travel, listen to music, watch college athletics, and stay active, preferably in the warm outdoors! He enjoys basketball, tennis, swimming, hiking, and the occasional run, but none of these compare to his love for road cycling. He simply cannot over-emphasize the vital role that exercise plays in a healthy lifestyle.
