My name is Ryan Haen and I am a freshmen at Ithaca College. I am currently enrolled as an exploratory student in the school of Humanities and Sciences. However I am planning on declaring my major in the school of Health Studies and Human Performance in athletic training in the near future. I am 18 years old and I am from Rochester, New York. I have played hockey my whole life at a very high level. Along with on ice training always came off ice weight training which always intrigued me greatly. I was always very interested in what trainers were saying and eager to learn more about the field. Here at Ithaca I play on the club hockey team and still work out intensely on my own. I am also always looking to better educate myself on how the body works and what is good and what is bad. I am very anxious to declare my major and start my career in the field. Everyone has always told me in the past that I am very compassionate and good when working with people so I figured this will only help to be an athletic trainer. I believe a profession in athletic training is perfect for me and I am very excited and anxious to see what the future holds for me.
