Final PDP

Personal Development Plan
Whitney Nicole Anderson
Applied Science Major at University of Wisconsin- Stout
Interdisciplinary concentration
Coaching and Health and Fitness minor

 What is my objective?
To be successful, to help injured athletes achieve their full potential, to use my knowledge and skills to make someone better and give them opportunities they otherwise might not of had. To help make society be healthier and live better lives, by maintaining their movement and mobility and promoting an active life style.

What are my strengths?
I have a strong background in biology and in health and fitness that I have obtained from my studies at UW-Stout. For 4 years I have experienced extensive first hand athletic training skills and have mastered majority of the techniques in prevention of injury and care for the athletes. I also have a vast knowledge and experience in CPR and first aid through working as a lifeguard for 6 years. I am a quick learner, very organized, time management skills and great leadership skills.

What are my values?
I very strongly believe in my Christian faith and value my religious community. I value hard work, family, financial security, great friendships, supportive and positive people and environments, my education and a healthy active life style.

 What are my goals for life?
1. Be the Head of an athletic Department for a Professional sports team
2. Graduate top of my class from Western Carolina University
3. Travel to Bali
4. Go on a medical mission trip to a 3rd world country
5. Coach a team to a championship
6. Leave a legacy
7. Teach my children the importance of education and helping others
8. Own and run a professional Olympic center
9. Never miss anything that’s important to my family
10. To make every day better than the one before

What areas do I need to develop?
I will be heading to a doctor of Physical theory graduate program to further my education and development as a Physical therapist.

How can I create opportunities?
I can create opportunities by meeting all the qualifications to be accepted into my future career. Also, by making and keep great friends and contacts in my field. I also believe by staying positive and by working hard great opportunities will always find their way to you.

What threats are there to prevent me moving on?
Financial backing is always a concern as graduate programs are not cheap. However, working part-time and receiving financial aid should help to fix that problem. There is also the issues that fate decided to through into one’s life without warning; however, I am not concerned of the timeline my goals will be completed.
