Good Day to All! I became part of the Athletic Department Team at Yuba College in August 2005 providing my services as a Certified Athletic Trainer. I graduated from California State University, Sacramento Magna Cum Laude in 2001 in which I received my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Athletic Training/Pre-Therapy. I became nationally certified in the Spring of 2002 and continued my education and growth as a health care provider through experience in hospital as well as clinical settings. I have experience with various populations including adolescence through geriatric, Olympic, and Special Olympic Athletes. As I truly admire the heightened potential of quality one on one care in the clinical setting, my passion for athletics has made Athletic Training the perfect fit. At Yuba College, my dedication remains to the continued progress of quality care for student-athletes through injury prevention, assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, all encompassed education and awareness, compassion, and creative fun.
Many thanks to Dr. Vogel as we are eternally grateful for his years of dedication to Yuba College athletics. Dr. Vogel’s outstanding character, quality of care, and mentorship is truly unmatched.
