Veronica Alejo-Waits has been an athletic trainer at Lockhart ISD for nine years. A graduate of Tarleton State University in 2005, she began her professional athletic training career as the Head athletic trainer for an arena football team, the Odessa Roughnecks (IFL, Intense Football League), who captured the Championship title in late 2006. In 2007, she took her first high school job as the assistant athletic trainer at Calhoun County ISD, home of the Fighting Sandcrabs and Sandies. After a year on the coast, she felt she needed to move inland and found a home in Lockhart, America. “Coach V” enjoys the small-town atmosphere of Lockhart and the close knit family-feel of the community. She is excited and anxious to see the progress of the Lockhart Lions and Lady Lions and is an admirer of the constant hard work and dedication these young men and women put into their sport.

My interest in athletic training began in 8th grade. I was a student athletic trainer all four years of high school. I attended Texas State University and was accepted into the Athletic Training Education Program. Upon graduation, I received a job working at the Ann Richard's School in Austin ISD. I worked in AISD for 2 1/2 years. I began working for Lockhart Junior High in January 2015. I have enjoyed working with the staff and students of LISD and look forward to this school year!
