Meet Jackie Church: The newest member of the Cramer team

December 10, 2015

All of us at Cramer are pleased to introduce Jackie Church--our most recent addition to staff. Jackie, an exercise physiologist, joined us in November in the role of associate regional promotions manager.

Jackie has been on our radar for the past year as she worked on a contract basis for Performance Health, Cramer’s parent company. In that capacity, she was an education manager and assisted with the release of the Theraband CLX-Consecutive Loops.

“Over the past year working for Performance Health, I had the opportunity to work along side the Cramer staff since I live in the Kansas City area. When the promotions manager position became available, it was just a natural step for me to move into that role with my exercise physiology background. Also, I’ve played volleyball since I was 12 years old, and have spent a lot of time in training rooms.”

Jackie grew up in Kansas City and graduated from Bishop Miege High School in 2008. She then attended Wichita State on a volleyball scholarship, earning both undergraduate and graduate degrees in exercise science. She is certified as a personal trainer and in sports conditioning by the American Council on Exercise.

In addition to playing volleyball in college, Jackie played professionally with the Premier Volleyball League (PVL). “PVL is a professional volleyball league sanctioned by USA Volleyball that began in 2012,” Jackie explains. “It is made up of teams from regional volleyball associations across North America, and offers tournament play and a championship event each year. Many of the players are former college players and former Olympians. I was with PVL for two years and it was wonderful getting to play the game I love at that high level.”

In her new position with Cramer, Jackie will contact and visit athletic trainers at the high school, college, and professional level in the Midwest region from Oklahoma to Minnesota. “I’m excited about the opportunity to represent the Cramer brand and introduce athletic trainers to new products from both Cramer and Performance Health. I look forward to many conversations about helping athletes perform better and heal successfully.

In her spare time, Jackie says she can usually be found at the gym. “I enjoy yoga, Pilates, and working out. And to stay involved with volleyball, I love coaching. Last year, I coached 14-year-olds for a club traveling team.” Some of her favorite Cramer products are the Active Ankle AS1 Pro ankle brace and 950 Tape.
