Trista is the Director of Education at HawkGrips, where she organizes continuing education courses. She also instructs clinicians on how to appropriately incorporate HawkGrips into daily practice. Before joining the HawkGrips team, Trista was an Assistant Athletic Trainer at Holy Family University (HFU) in Philadelphia. She worked primarily with the men’s soccer, men’s basketball, and softball teams. Prior to working at HFU, Trista was a Graduate Assistant at West Chester University of Pennsylvania (WCUPA). While there, she worked with the field hockey, men’s and women’s track & field, women’s volleyball, and women’s basketball teams. Trista earned her bachelor’s degree from Boston University (BU) in 2011 and master’s degree from WCUPA in 2013. She completed her thesis work on the effects of IASTM versus massage in alleviating signs and symptoms of delayed-onset muscle soreness. Trista was first exposed to IASTM in 2010 by a preceptor at BU, and her interest grew after taking a CEU course and incorporating IASTM into her daily practice. Now after seeing years of great results with her athletes by utilizing IASTM, her passion lies in training other sports medicine clinicians on how to achieve the same positive outcomes.
