Miranda Zamora-Williams, Head Athletic Trainer: I grew up in the mountains of Ruidoso, New Mexico and earned a B.S. in Athletic Training from the University of New Mexico. I completed my M.S. in Kinesiology and Health at University of Wyoming where my research interests focused on wildland firefighter health. I’m currently adjunct faculty in the Kinesiology Department at UW teaching Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries. I am overseeing ongoing projects at the university to promote health, wellness, and injury prevention for wildland and structure firefighters. My primary areas of experience include collegiate and high school athletics. In my free time my husband and I enjoy fostering rescue dogs, traveling, and fly fishing.
Mike Monahan, Athletic Trainer: I was born and raised in Frederick Co. Maryland. From the moment I dislocated my elbow wrestling, I knew I wanted to become an athletic trainer. I earned my B.S. in Athletic Training from Slippery Rock University in Dec. 2016. After graduating I spent over a month in the Czech Republic shadowing in a variety of their health care settings. In 2017 I started to work as an athletic trainer in a secondary school. I started to look for other jobs once COVID-19 started and that’s when I found this opportunity with Premier at Laramie High School! I plan on going back to school to get my doctorate in occupational therapy.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, hanging out with friends, playing video games and I plan to start hunting next year.
