LaTonja Lee.jpg



New Committee Chair is LaTonja Lee M.S, ATC, PES. LaTonja has been on the NYSATA EDAC committee for the past 3 years. She currently works at Molloy College as one of four Assistant Athletic Trainers. The teams she is responsible for include:  Women’s Tennis, Women’s Volleyball, Men’s Basketball and Women’s Lacrosse.


LaTonja has always had a passion for creating awareness, promoting and advocating for the Athletic Training profession since she began her career 8 years ago. She believes increasing access to students across NYS, whether in secondary school setting or non-traditional settings, that it is imperative to bring diversity and inclusion into the field. She is looking forward to working with the committee and implementing some new initiatives, outreach and other opportunities in this growing field.
