Klein Joins Reinhardt as Assistant Athletic Trainer
Allie Klein has been added to the Reinhardt College athletic department as an assistant athletic trainer. She will assist head athletic trainer Taz Kicklighter with directing Reinhardt's athletic training/sports medicine program, which serves more than 200 student-athletes from the College's 14 intercollegiate sports.
Klein's new position is a partnership between Reinhardt and the Canton (Ga.) Institute for Physical Therapy. She will serve part time at both locations.
"I thought this was a really good opportunity to stay at a smaller college setting, which is what I like, and I like the opportunity to work at a clinical setting as well, because I've never gotten to do that before," Klein said. "I grew up not 15 minutes from here, so I'm familiar with the Canton area."
Background Klein, a certified athletic trainer, came to Reinhardt after being at former Southern States Athletic Conference rival Berry College in Mount Berry, Ga. She was a graduate assistant athletic trainer at Berry for two years, working primarily with the sports of women's soccer, men's basketball, and men's and women's cross country. Before Berry, Klein was a student athletic trainer at NCAA Division II North Georgia College & State University in Dahlonega, with much of her focus being on the men's basketball squad. Prior to that, she worked with the teams at North Hall High School in Gainesville, Ga.
After receiving her bachelor's degree in athletic training education with magna cum laude honors from North Georgia in 2007, Klein went on to earn her master's in secondary education from Berry in 2009. She is from Roswell, Ga., and is a graduate of Lassiter High School in Marietta.
