National Athletic Trainer Month - Christanie Monreal

National Athletic Trainer Month - Christanie Monreal

During National Athletic Trainer Month, WFISD Athletics proudly recognizes Christanie Monreal, Athletic Trainer at Rider High School. With a wealth of experience and a profound dedication to her profession, Monreal exemplifies excellence in athletic care.

Christanie is not just a professional, but also a devoted spouse to Jose Monreal and a loving mother to their son, Arthur Luis Monreal, affectionately known as "Artie." Her educational journey includes earning a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from Texas State University in 2009, followed by a Master of Science in Kinesiology from the University of The Incarnate Word in 2011, and culminating in a Doctor of Athletic Training from the University of Idaho in 2018.

Before joining WFISD, Christanie's career spanned a decade at MSU, where she served as the Assistant Head Athletic Trainer for six years before transitioning to Assistant Professor/Clinical Education Coordinator for another four years. Her diverse professional background underscores her commitment to athletic care and education.

Outside of work, Christanie finds joy in cheering on the Rider Raiders in any sport, spending quality time playing with Artie outdoors, and indulging in crafting projects. She cherishes the unique relationships formed with student-athletes through athletic training, emphasizing the importance of recognizing each individual beyond their injuries.

Her guiding mantra, articulated by E. E. Cummings, reflects her unwavering commitment to authenticity and resilience: "To be nobody but yourself in a world that's doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting." Christanie Monreal's dedication to her craft and her compassionate approach to athletic care make her a cherished asset to Rider High School and the WFISD community.
