Feature Friday- Get to Know Erin Randall, ATC, MS of Marengo Physical Therapy

Erin Randall, ATC, MSThis week we are happy to feature Erin Randall, ATC, MS of our Marengo Physical Therapy clinic and athletic trainer for Marengo Community High School athletics.  We sat down this week with Erin to learn a little more about her.

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.

I am a Certified Athletic Trainer that is responsible for providing Athletic Training services to Marengo Community High School’s athletics program. I attended Eastern Illinois University for my BS and MS degree.

I am from Marengo, Illinois, but I currently live in Crystal Lake with my husband, Josh and daughter, Ainsley.

I am an active member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) and Crystal Lake Road Runners.

What inspires you to do what you do?

I am inspired by the athletes I work with everyday.  If it was not for them I would not do what I do as a profession. It is my responsibility to provide these athletes with a high standard of care through the prevention, recognition, management and rehabilitation of sports related injuries. I absolutely love seeing my athletes succeed while playing the sports they love and this motivates me to continue doing what I do.

What is the best part of your job as an athletic trainer?  What is the most difficult?

I love my job because I can make a difference in a young athlete's life. My athletes are very important to me and I love being a positive role model for them.

The most difficult part of my job is the crazy work hours and trying to balance everything I want to do in a day.

What do you enjoy doing in your fun?

I am a marathon runner; however I love to race all distances especially with my friends and family. I also love to swim, spend time with my daughter and husband, and decorate cakes.

Do you have any upcoming personal or professional milestones?

I am contemplating running my first 50 mile run/race.

What is something that distinguishes you from everyone else?

I absolutely love the thrill of a challenge and usually the crazier the better.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

My dad always told me that it does not matter how much money you make. What matters is that you need to find something that you love doing and be passionate about it.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

It drives me crazy when a task is left unfinished prior to moving on to the next task.

What is your motto in life?

“Face your fears. Live your dreams.”
