David Osborne was born in Bellevue, WA. He is the youngest of 9 children and is an uncle to more than 30 nieces and nephews. Being surrounded by siblings all his life has strengthened his love and appreciation for the importance of a strong family bond. Growing up, he loved working with his hands. After completing high school, he was unsure what path to take into the working world. He was struck with intrigue after seeing an advertisement for massage therapy.

In 2003, David graduated from Ashmead College of Massage located in Seattle, Washington. Following graduation, he worked part-time at Bel-Red Physical Therapy, where he provided massage, therapeutic modalities, and assisted the physical therapists with rehabilitation exercises. After several years, he was introduced to the field of Athletic Training and became determined to pursue this degree. David was accepted to WSU and moved to Pullman in January 2009. By May 2012, he had received his bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training from Washington State University and earned his board certification.

While obtaining his Athletic Training degree, he continued to keep his massage therapy skills sharp by working as a contracted massage therapist for WSU’s Athletic Department. During his schooling, David worked closely with WSU’s baseball, swim, volleyball, and track teams. Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) are often the first responders to an athlete’s injury and work closely with their athletes to guide them through the recovery process. They focus on: prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and the documentation of athletic injuries.

Working within the scope of his practice and in combination with other healthcare providers, David has gained a working knowledge of the intricacies that can be associated with a wide variety of injuries and how to assist athletes as they strive to improve performance.

Shortly following his graduation in 2012, David accepted a yearlong internship as the athletic trainer for the WSU Track & Field Team. In this position, he oversaw the healthcare coordination for over 100 athletes and worked cooperatively with coaching staff and healthcare professionals throughout the community. In addition to this role, he also mentored and assisted in the instruction of undergraduate athletic training students. Nothing is more satisfying to David than helping someone close to him succeed.
