Athletic Trainer Spotlight: Nicole Markiewicz, MS, LAT, ATC, PES, CSS

Athletic trainers complete years of educational training, along with clinical training before stepping onto the field. Along with being a part of the sports team, athletic trainers are a part of a team of Orthopedics & Sports Medicine professionals.

Aside from assessing injuries that happen during the game, athletic trainers are proactive in helping athletes prevent injuries from occurring. From proper hydration to stretching techniques to strength training, athletic trainers are working to keep athletes healthy.

Meet Nicole Markiewicz an Athletic Trainer (AT) at Seton Hill University. Her primary sports are volleyball, men’s basketball, and softball. She graduated from California University of Pennsylvania with a bachelors degree in Athletic Training and a masters degree in Exercise Science.

"I became an AT because of my desire to help people, interests in science, and passion for sports. I am passionate about being an AT because I love seeing my athletes return to play after an injury. Helping them through the rehab process so they can get back to the sport they love is so rewarding."

"My most memorable day would be when I was with Seton Hill University softball in Denver for the Division ll World Series. Although we lost, it was an amazing experience that I will never forget."

Athletic trainers understand the passion athletes have for the game and are there to support them both physically and mentally. Learn more about the Excela Health athletic training program here.
