My name is Maria Lopez and I am the Assistant Athletic Trainer at Mabank ISD and Sports Medicine Instructor. This is my third year at Mabank and I can't wait to see what this new school year has in store for us all!
I graduated from Tarleton State University and worked at Abilene Bone and Joint Clinic in Abilene, Tx as medical assistant for orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Derek Padon, MD and as contract athletic trainer for the school districts around the area.
I was born in Guanajuato, Mexico but grew up in Dublin, Tx where my two sisters, brother, and parents currently live.
I absolutely love what I do! My goal was to ultimately be at a high school setting and teach about the career I love and enjoy. I am excited to start the new school year with all of my students, old and new, and the great people I work with.
I hope everyone has a great and blessed new school year! Good luck to all of our athletes and coaches!
