Stephanie Gallagher, MEd, LAT, ATC, CSCS: Stephanie grew up in Wyoming, but has spent the last 13 years working in the Black Hills of South Dakota in the high school setting, so is very happy to be returning to Wyoming! She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wyoming, and her Master’s degree from Iowa State University. She brings 20 years of experience as a certified athletic trainer, working with numerous collegiate, high school, and club level sports; additionally, she has provided years of sports medicine coverage for rodeo, both high school and PRCA levels. Stephanie has also been a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) for over 15 years, and has helped develop and implement sport performance training camps for athletes ages 12-18. She believes education about athletic injuries and prevention of such is important to athletes of all ages, and is happiest when athletes are able to return to play at or above their previous performance levels.
