Name: Anne Slater
Credentials: BS, LAT, ATC
My official Title: Assistant Athletic Trainer
I have been with CPR since: 2014
Hometown (where I grew up): Grand Rapids, MI
A good day at work includes competition! I love rooting on my team, no matter what the sport.
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the student-athletes succeed, especially post-injury. Forming the bonds and close relationships with them make it fun and always entertaining.
I chose to work at CPR because the company as a whole is very inclusive and inviting and I support their overall philosophy. The atmosphere and the staff are really outstanding; I am learning new things every day from my experienced coworkers.
When I am not at work, I am usually drawing, or working on some art project, reading a good book (I prefer fantasy, drama, and sci-fi novels), or hanging with my family. I am always down to see a concert or movie, or grab a beer after work!
My very first job, besides babysitting, was caddying at Cascade Country Club, which was absolutely no fun and I did not like it. My first job I was on payroll was at MVP Sportsplex where I worked in Housekeeping a.k.a. Laundry Girl.
Four Quick Facts About Me:
1. I am a Harry Potter freak.
2. I’m a bit of a daredevil; I love heights and roller coasters, I’ve done the RipCord and the Slingshot at amusement parks, and 2 years ago I went skydiving. I can’t wait to jump again someday, and also maybe try bungee jumping or a canyon swing somewhere.
3. A few of my favorite things: volleyball, chocolate, The Parent Trap, Friends, and Chick-Fil-A.
4. I’m addicted to traveling. I have been all over the continental US with my family while growing up. Someday I would love to travel and backpack through Europe, while photographing everything I see.
