Welcome to my ePortfolio. Hello, my name is Marie Dardano and I am currently a sophomore at Ithaca College. I am majoring in Athletic Training. I am from Westmoreland, NY which is a small town about 40 minutes east of the city of Syracuse and 20 minutes from the city of Utica. During my years at Westmoreland High School, I participated in Soccer, Basketball, and Softball. I truly enjoy working with a team, playing, and watching sports. I think that this among with multiple sports injuries, including a torn ACL, have drawn me to the career of Athletic Training. However, I am also very interested in Physical Therapy and the idea of developing rehab programs and helping people of all ages overcome injuries. I am hoping to receive my ATC following senior year, but I may be interested in pursuing my graduate work in PT. I plan on using all of the opportunities Ithaca College has to offer to help direct my education toward my future career goals.
