Over the last 8 years of being an Athletic Therapist, I think I’ve been called almost every title in the book:
And the list goes on…
At the beginning of my career this didn’t bother me too much. I just let it roll off my back..Often times it was dependent on the environment I was in. I would think to myself: “Is it worth correcting them?”
Nowadays I make sure I own my title as an Athletic Therapist. That’s who I am, and it’s a profession I am VERY proud of!
Speak up and stick to your guns! Whatever profession you are in, I think it’s important to own who you are and what you do!!
