Lindsy Donnelly MEd, ATC
Assistant Athletic Trainer

Lindsy spent the first 7 years of her career caring for high school and collegiate athletes in San Diego, California. After a brief period in Charlottesville, Virginia to obtain her post professional master’s degree, she returned to California in July of 2014 to join the Stanford Sports Medicine Team.

She has a wealth of experience as a clinician and an educator at the high school and collegiate level. Her time as an instructor and a graduate student strengthened her resolve to continually pursue knowledge and advance the profession of athletic training. She places a strong emphasis on education and a holistic approach to managing each individual’s care.

Lindsy also serves as the Assistant Coordinator for Athletic Training International Relations with universities in Ireland, Japan and Australia.

In the summer of 2017 Donnelly assumed the role as the Co-Director for the Athletic Training Student Internship Program. In partnership with her colleague, Justin Police, she manages the clinical education and affiliation agreements with multiple universities throughout the US.

While at Stanford, Donnelly has worked with the women’s soccer and men’s tennis teams, but 2017 marks her first season with the women’s volleyball program.
