Meet Victoria

Victoria_RC.JPGIt’s National Athletic Training Month!

Meet our Athletic Trainer Victoria Stanislawski.

Victoria received her undergraduate degree in Athletic Training/Health Education from Kean University and her master’s degree from the University of South Carolina. As a graduate assistant, she worked as a Certified Athletic Trainer for the USC cheerleading and equestrian teams. She also served as a physician extender to two of USC Sports Medicine’s orthopaedic surgeons.

Victoria completed The Steadman Clinic’s Athletic Training Fellowship program in 2013. She is a board-certified orthopaedic technologist and licensed surgical assistant. She enjoys hiking, cycling, snowboarding and volunteering with the US Ski and Snowboard Association.

Why does she love what she does?

“My workday is never the same!  I’m able to evaluate patients clinically, assist in their surgical intervention and watch them progress in their rehabilitation, ultimately returning to sport.  The human body is an amazing machine and I continue to learn clinically and within surgery with Dr. Cunningham’s guidance.  I’m able to enhance my skills through continuing education, utilizing evidence-based practice centered on current medical and scientific research.  This career allows me to connect with amazing people.  The moments of heartfelt appreciation from patients who are able to return to century rides, climb Mt. Everest, ski 500,000 vertical feet or simply return to their weekly yoga routine because of the efforts of our team makes the late nights, early mornings and long days worth it.  These are the moments that make me love being an Athletic Trainer!”
