JOANNA FLETCHER - MS, LAT, ATC
I was born and raised in Northeastern Wyoming and moved to Bismarck, North Dakota where I received my Bachelors in Athletic Training at the University of Mary. I moved to East Texas where I worked as an Outreach Athletic Trainer in the high school setting as I completed my Masters in Kinesiology from the University of Pan American. I moved to Southeast Texas after graduate school and worked for two different school districts as an Athletic Trainer. In the schools I would evaluate injuries, provide rehabilitation for injured athletes, and direct them to a physician that would provide the athlete with best care for their type of injury. I worked hand in hand with our team physicians and any other physicians that treated our athletes. Since moving back to Gillette I provide athletic training services to Gillette College, Campbell County High School South Campus, football game coverage at Moorcroft, and the Roughriders. I have started an Athletic Resilience Program can help reduce the risk of sustaining a serious lower extremity injury. Through Strengthening the core and lower extremity, learn safe jumping and landing techniques through plyometrics, and proper techniques with cutting, pivoting, and direction Agility and Balance.
