Samantha Carpenter, MS, ATC, LAT, CSMS
Athletic Trainer
Sports Medicine and Performance Teacher

If in need of athletic training services while NPA is closed, please email or to create an appointment. I will be working out of the East Entire Care Physical Therapy Clinic, but we will be running as normal. 

Samantha earned both her Master’s Degree in Athletic Training and a Bachelor’s Degree in Fitness Wellness from Northern Arizona University. As a Certified Athletic Trainer licensed to practice in Arizona, her aim is to keep athletes healthy and safe through injury prevention, education, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. In addition, athletic trainers are healthcare professionals who are also proficient in the following:  clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate care, treatment, reconditioning, organization and administration, and professional responsibility. 

If interested in becoming an athletic training student at NPA (helping in the ATR, attending games, taping, etc.), please send an email
