Position:
Assistant Athletic Trainer

Vozzo is also in charge of coordinating drug testing of all university student-athletes and co-coordinates Sports Medicine for UVa summer camps. She has been at Virginia since the summer of 2009.

Hitting the ground running at Virginia, Vozzo teamed up with Ken Clausen and the rest of the Virginia men's lacrosse program to promote "Lacrosse Mustache Madness," a November-based initiative to create awareness for prostate cancer. The inaugural event raised nearly $32,000 and received much support from a nation-wide lacrosse community in 2009. Just finishing its fifth year, the second, third, fourth and fifth years "Lacrosse Mustache Madness" has combined to raise $377,000 for the HEADstrong Foundation which helps those affected by blood cancer. That is a five-year total for the event of just over $400,000.

A Certified Athletic Trainer since 2002, Vozzo was also certified as Strength & Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength & Conditioning Association in 2003. She is also trained in Graston Technique and Kinesiotape application. She is a 2002 graduate of James Madison with a bachelor of science degree in health sciences with a concentration in athletic training. As a student athletic trainer, Vozzo worked with the Dukes' baseball, football, women's soccer and men's & women's gymnastics squads.

Vozzo came to UVa from Quinnipiac where she spent three years as an assistant athletic trainer with the men's lacrosse program, while overseeing the graduate assistant who covered women's soccer and men's and women's tennis. She also taught in the university's undergraduate Athletic Training Education Program and acted as an Approved Clinical Instructor.

Upon graduation from James Madison, Vozzo served two years as an assistant athletic trainer at Hampden-Sydney, working primarily with men's lacrosse. She also assisted with football, men's basketball and baseball. Vozzo graduated with a master's degree in adult & community college education with a specialization in health professions education from NC State in 2006 when she worked as a graduate assistant athletic trainer with the football program. Vozzo currently resides in Charlottesville.
