Shawn Robinson ATC/L
My name is Shawn Robinson. I was born and raised in Starkville, MS. After finishing my bachelors at Mississippi State University, I completely changed directions, and I decided I wanted to become an athletic trainer. Therefore I headed to the University of Southern Mississippi, and I enrolled in the athletic training program. During my practicum hours, I was assigned to work at North Forrest High School with Travis Holifield. I learned so much during my time with Travis including what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. It was there I realized I wanted to work as an athletic trainer at the high school level. I graduated and became a certified athletic trainer in 2009, and I immediately took a job with Hattiesburg Clinic. I have been a practicing certified athletic trainer since then. Also, I am a member of the NATA and the MATA. If chosen as the MATA treasurer, I look forward to serving my coworkers, colleagues, and friends to the best of my ability for the betterment of our profession. I have a lot of ideas, and I am very motivated to put these ideas into action. I look forward to giving back to a profession that has given so much to me.
Felicia Saulter M.ed., ATC/L
I am currently in my fourth year as a BOC-certified athletic trainer and a member of MATA for the last five years. I work as an outreach athletic trainer for King’s Daughters Hospital and MS Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center in the Yazoo County area. In my current position, I have been covering four area high schools for the past 3 ½ years. I served as a contract athletic trainer in the MS Delta area and a graduate assistant with the HPER Department at Delta State University for one school year before my current position.
In 2000, I received my first Bachelor’s degree in Biology/Chemistry and Physical Education from Blue Mountain College. I then taught science and physical education classes, while coaching basketball and track for seven years. I decided to return to college in 2007 to receive my Master’s degree and a second Bachelor’s degree from Delta State University. In 2009, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training. The following year I finished my Master of Education degree in Health, Physical Education, and Recreation.
While teaching, I was a science fair coordinator, in charge of several student organizations, and coordinated several other school functions, such as, tournaments and field days. My graduate assistant position consisted of collecting and organizing data, performing exercise testing, leading various exercise classes, helping organize one-mile and two-mile fun runs, and serving as a wellness coach to individuals participating in the Healthy Campus Community Initiative grant through Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Two years ago, my boss and I felt there was a need for the local doctors and coaches in the community to be educated on the current concussion guidelines. I organized a seminar, with the help of the MS Brain Injury Association that had speakers to outline the guidelines and show the possible effects of playing with concussions. I feel that all of these responsibilities have prepared me for the position of treasurer.
