"Have an open mind and don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone."

A lifelong dancer, Keana's run in with stress fractures in both her legs in high school set her on a path to athletic training. "When I saw the trainers working with the athletes and what the athletes did to regain their health, I knew Athletic Training was the major for me."
