Roby tabbed as assistant athletic trainer

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Stephanie Roby has been named assistant athletic trainer at McDaniel College, announced by Gregg Nibbelink on Tuesday.

"I am excited to welcome Stephanie to the McDaniel College Sports Medicine Staff," Nibbelink said. "I believe the Green Terror athletes will benefit greatly from her knowledge, compassion, and expertise."

Roby comes to McDaniel after completing her graduate assistantship at Lock Haven, where she earned a master of science in sport and exercise psychology. Over the last year, she worked autonomously with a variety of teams but had specific duties with the football, swimming and track and field teams. She also had the opportunity to work in the Himes Rehabilitation Center, where she evaluated athletes and designed specific rehabilitation programs.

She also helped supervise the undergraduate program students in the clinical setting while doing evaluations, rehabilitations and treatments.

As an undergraduate at James Madison, she earned her bachelor of science in athletic training while working specifically with the swimming, football and softball teams.

As a senior, she worked as a teacher's assistant for the program's acute care and upper evaluation class. She worked with the pre-professional phase students while in clinic, allowing her to take on a leadership role and help educate the younger students.

While at JMU, Roby had the opportunity to assist at Eastern Mennonite during the spring semester of her junior year, working with a variety of teams in rehab and event coverage.

"I'm very thankful to have been selected as the assistant athletic trainer, and I can't wait to get started in August," Roby said. "I have such a love for athletic training, and I can't wait to begin working with the athletes, coaches and other staff members this year in that position. I am excited to have an opportunity to teach classes as well. After meeting many of the staff members and seeing the campus, I feel that McDaniel is going to be a great place to call home."

Roby assumes her duties with the start of the 2017 fall preseason on Aug. 12.
