Name: Nicole Lemke
Job: Athletic Therapist for Football Alberta
Education background: Bachelor of Physical Education from the University of Alberta, Advanced Certificate in Athletic Therapy from Mount Royal College and a Master of Science from the University of Alberta.
What is your typical day: My typical day on the road with Football Alberta's U18 provincial team involves per-practice preparations, sideline coverage in the event of an injury and treatment time in a host clinic.
What is your favourite part of your job: The favorite part of my job is always game day. Being part of the team and sharing in their pre-game anxieties and post-game reactions.
Why did you become an AT: I became an AT because I enjoy sports. I was an active high school athlete and this gave me a great opportunity to stay involved in sport.
What is the highlight of your career: Football Alberta takes a team to Maui, Hawaii each summer. I have gone 8 times! It's a beautiful location and there's a lot to be said for working on a sideline that overlooks the ocean.
