Laurisa Richard, ATC

Whitney Schroer is a current GVSU Graduate Assistant for the Movement Science Department. She is originally from Lawrence, NE and received her bachelors in athletic training from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Whitney serves as the ATC for the woman's softball team at GVSU and assists with classes in the athletic training program. While at Grand Valley, Whitney is working toward her masters in Public Administration with an emphasis in Health Administration.

Laurisa Richard graduated from Manchester University in 2016 with a Bachelor's of Science in Athletic Training. I am a graduate assistant for the movement science department in athletic training. I get the best of both worlds by working in the classroom assisting with the athletic training program and working with GVSU's men's and women's cross country and track & field teams. I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Adult & Higher Education. Upon graduating in 2018, I anticipate working as an AT with collegiate athletic teams.
