Christina T. Coxe, MS, ATC, is a Nazareth High School graduate and attended Moravian College before transferring to East Stroudsburg University (ESU). She was an honor graduate at ESU and received her bachelor's degree in physical education with a concentration in athletic training. In 2008, Christina earned a Master of Science degree in Athletic Training, also at ESU.
Christina joined Coordinated Health in 2000 and has been practicing at Nazareth High School since. She has implemented preventative programs, such as the Thrower’s Ten, to successfully prevent upper-extremity injury to overhead-throwing athletes.
Christina was secretary and president of ESU's chapter of Phi Epsilon Kappa, the national honor fraternity for physical education majors. She served as the race director for the annual Together for Derek 5K Walk/Run held at Northampton Community College, which over 10 years raised more than $115,000 for research. She is a PATH Registered Therapeutic Horseback riding instructor, which allows her to help special needs patients develop balance and increase strength.
On why she became a certified athletic trainer, Christina says, “Because I was the girl who was always hurt! I was an avid equestrian but decided to play softball in junior high. Unfortunately, I tore my ACL sliding into third base, but luckily my parents were referred to [Coordinated Health's] Dr. Godbout for my evaluation, and from there the rest is history."
