Jess VanTroostenberghe, MAT, ATC, CKTP

Q: Tell us how long you have worked for Evergreen and describe your duties. Tell us about yourself and family
A: I started with Evergreen in January 2014 as the Head Athletic Trainer for Big Rapids High School. As the only athletic trainer at Evergreen-Big Rapids, it is my responsibility to provide and maintain high quality sports medicine service for the student-athletes of Big Rapids High School and their opponents. I am a farm girl, born and bred in Southeastern Michigan, “southern thumb” area. Grew up driving tractors, trucks, ATVs and snowmobiles and yes, being the clumsy person that I tend be, I managed to cause the occasional accident as well. Currently my amazing parents and aunt continue to farm even more land now, then when I was younger! I often escape the daily grind and go home to help out around the farm. I maintain a small residence in Big Rapids with my cat, Gomez.

Q: Where is your favorite place to eat and favorite food?
A: It is a toss-up between Texas Road House and Toshi, a sushi restaurant in Gurnee, IL. Favorite food would have to be either a steak or chicken dish without vegetables.

Q: What is the most played song on your ipod/iphone?
A: It seems that I am always receiving phone calls or text messages from my coaches, student-athletes, parents and family… My ringtones would be the most played songs. Independence Day by Martina McBride and Check Yes or No by George Strait. My heart belongs to country music.

Q: Favorite Quote?
A: “Adversity is your friend, so smile at it, love it and endure it.” – Unknown

“Be the kind of [person] that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, ‘oh crap, She’s up!'” – unknown

Q: Favorite form of exercise?
A: Biking and roller blading… without falling!

Q: Favorite day/day of the week/moth of the year and why?
A: Christmas Eve/Day and the 4th of July. These are special holidays because it reminds me of what I have and what I have to lose.

Q: Who would you choose as a mentor?
A: Throughout my life, I have had many trials and roadblocks/detours that have needed scaling. During these detours, I have had the wonderful opportunity of meeting lots of amazing people. Each one of these individuals, from family to peers to student-athletes has managed to teach me something special and something sacred. Therefore, my mentors are the past angels who have gone before me, the current people in my life and the future individuals that I have yet to meet.

Q: How do you recharge?
A: FAMILY VACATION!!!!

Q: If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
