My clinical at Athletico in Bridgeton, Missouri, has been very eye opening. I've attained my main goal of getting as much general experience as I can. Shannon has been a huge supporter in making sure I get to put into practice everything I have learned since I began the program.
My Clinical Instructor, Shannon Landgraf, has helped me navigate every patient I've seen so far. She's always accessible to answer my questions and talk me through tough moments in my clinical reasoning. I wouldn't be as confident in myself as I am now if not for her guidance.
I would want to say what I wrote above, thank you for being supportive and giving me the feedback and guidance, I need to be a better clinician. I hope she gets a lifetime supply of Diet Dr. Pepper!
