Hello, my name is Sarah Texter and on this site I will share my latest projects and write about my thoughts and interests as I develop my career goals. A little about me—I am from Redlands, California, a city that once was home to one of the greatest soccer players of all time, Landon Donovan.
In June 2020, I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Western Oregon University. It has been quite the journey and a long time coming to get where I am today. After graduating high school I moved across the county to the state of Illinois to attend a small school called Knox College where I would play NCAA D3 soccer. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I withdrew from the school and moved back home. In the summer of 2016, I resumed my education from home and earned my Associates degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences. During this time is when I knew I wanted to continue my education in exercise science and transfer to Western Oregon in summer 2018.
Skipping forward to March 2020, I was in the process of completed my final term of college when the COVID 19 pandemic hit and changed everything for me. During that time I was suppose to have an internship at Northwest Rehab Associates, in Salem Oregon, but my school pulled everyone from onsite work forcing me to go home and complete an alternative assignment.
This resulted in me finishing college from home and deciding to pursue my NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certificate. At least this is what I thought I wanted to do. In March 2021, I took the CSCS exam and unfortunately didn't pass either section. This made me rethink what I wanted to do in life and just focus on getting my masters first because that I am certain is what I want. I will be attending the University of Roehampton, in London, UK, where I will work towards my masters in Sport and Exercise Science with a focus in Biomechanics.
I look forward to continuing to sharing my work and pursuing my career interests within the exercise science field. Please, feel free to get in touch for questions, collaborations, career opportunities or just to say hello.
