Certified Athletic Trainer

Justin Shinkle, MS, ATC

Justin is the full time Certified Athletic Trainer at South-Doyle High School, provided by Tennova Healthcare.  He earned his Bachelors of Arts in Athletic Training from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell SD, and a Master’s of Science in Athletic Training from Indiana State in Terre Haute, IN.  Justin is currently working towards a Doctorate of Science with a concentration in Athletic Training from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, UT.

Justin has been an AT since 2008, but worked as a student aide in high school where he found his love for the profession. He enjoyed being around sports and was fascinated with medicine and exercise.  A career in Athletic training provided the perfect combination.

Justin believes that an Athletic Trainer can be the difference in keeping a kid active in sports and he enjoys helping student athletes on their journey to athletic and life success.

In his spare time Justin enjoys spending time with his wife, two kids and their dog.  He also enjoys hiking, hunting and fishing, mountain biking and obstacle course racing.
