Jesseca Holcomb MS, ATC
Assistant Athletic Trainer

Jesseca joined the Stanford athletic training staff in July 2014 following four years as an Assistant Athletic Trainer at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. At Rhodes, Jesseca worked with over 10 men’s and women’s sports, directed the athletic training work-study program, managed the athletic training intern program, and created the sports psychology protocol. She was first drawn to athletic training while attending Huntingdon College as a collegiate soccer player. She quickly understood the value of athletic trainers because they helped her stay fit and healthy to play and start all four years of college, Upon completion of the program, she was voted as the Most Outstanding Student within the Health and Human Studies Department. Jesseca went straight to graduate school at Oregon State University where she worked directly with the Cross Country and Track & Field programs.

At Stanford, Jesseca primarily works with the Stanford Cross Country and Track & Field teams, as well as the liaison between the athletic training program and sports psychology. She is an accomplished athletic trainer in the area because of her manual therapy skills and continuing education. Jesseca has a certification in Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) and education in Postural Restoration (PRI), FMS, SFMA, and Assisted Soft Tissue Techniques. She believes that the body works as a unit and should be treated as one; so functional moments should be the basis of an evaluation and treatment.
