My name is Jessica Smalley and I am from Littleton, Colorado. I was born and raised here and firmly believe that Colorado is the best state there is! I live in a beautiful home with my boyfriend, Matt and my puppy Axel, who is one bundle of energy. We live a very active lifestyle and are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do so in such a beautiful state. Growing up I was an athlete and as most athletic trainers do at some point, suffered a career ending injury. After that experience, the world of sports medicine opened my eyes to the possibilities of new passions. I have been an athletic trainer since May of 2012 and have predominantly worked in the high school setting ever since. I am currently earning a master's degree and cannot wait to break into the collegiate level of sports and athletic training upon completion of my degree. My field of work is uniquely rewarding and I love the opportunity that I have been given to be able to help so many different people in so many different ways.
