Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who render service or treatment, under the direction of or in collaboration with a physician, in accordance with their education and training and the states' statutes, rules and regulations. As a part of the health care team, services provided by ATs include injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
My name is Heather Juarez and I am the new athletic trainer at Belen Consolidated Schools. I was born in Roswell and raised in Hagerman, NM. I attended New Mexico State University where I received my BS in Athletic Training Education. I then attended Texas State University where I received my MS in Athletic Training. While in graduate school, I was a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer at San Marcos High School. After graduation I accepted my first full time position at Roy Miller High School in Corpus Christi, TX and was a Co-Athletic Trainer there for three years. I then accepted a position at Veterans Memorial High School in Corpus Christi for another three years before moving to Belen. I have been practicing for nine years and absolutely love what I do.
