Zach Hatch
Faculty advisor: 
Dissertation / thesis / project title and brief summary: 

"Self stretching vs. IASTM as treatment for posterior shoulder tightness in overhead athletes."

Professional / academic / life plans after graduation:

Favorite memory of being a graduate student at Oregon State: 

The last two years have really been a lot about self discovery and mental health and learning what I was really capable of accomplishing both academically and personally. Also Sanchos was fun while it lasted. Be Yourself!

Impactful faculty mentorship: 

Alyssa Asay out at my clinical rotation really was the best mentor I could hope for. She really helped me come into my own as a clinician and I appreciate how much trust and value she put in me over the last couple years.
