Meet Micaela Lozano,
ND's athletic trainer
I live in: the Dallas area
College attended: Marquette University, undergrad; Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology;
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, grad school Master’s of Athletic Training
Community activities: Most Blessed Sacrament Church, Catholic Charities
My hobbies are: running, reading, sports (watching and participating)
I'm most proud of: Having accomplished my dreams of being an athletic trainer from a collegiate Division 1 level and now within a high school atmosphere where I can impact student-athletes lives in a positive way.
The best book I ever read was: not sure I could pick a favorite. I like mysteries I can actively engage in and solve!
I get inspiration from: my student-athletes. They make me want to come into work and do my job for them better and better every day.
My favorite musical artist is: No Doubt
My favorite movie is: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
The best advice I ever received was: My Dad taught me a long time ago that anything worth doing is worth doing 100 percent, so I strive to make sure I’m just as hard of a worker as he has always been.
If I could travel anywhere, I would go: Europe, but flying over water scares me so that may take a while.
How long have you been at ND? Since Dec. 17 2013
What teams do you work with? All of them!
How many schools in DISD have a trainer? All 22 high schools within the DISD now have athletic trainers.
As trainer, how many sporting events do you go to per week? Depending on the season and what sports are active, between 2 to 5.
What are the top three most common injuries that you see at the school? Sprained ankles, patellofemoral issues, and varieties of bumps and bruises.
What advice would you give to a student who wanted to become a trainer? Get ready to work really hard on most nights, weekends and holidays. But the end result of healthy student-athletes winning their sporting events is worth it.
What do you enjoy most about ND? I enjoy the variety of students that we have here at North Dallas, and watching how all those students can join a single team or club with so many personalities and become great friends and people together.
