Meet the Greensboro Orthopaedics Team

Ami Adams, MS, LAT, ATC, CES

Head Athletic Trainer: Grimsley High School

Ami Adams joined Greensboro Orthopaedics in 2017. She is an athletic trainer (AT) with a great deal of compassion to care for her community. As an AT, Ami provides preventative care, injury & illness evaluations, as well as treatment & rehabilitation of emergent, acute, and chronic medical conditions. Her primary role at Greensboro Orthopaedics is to deliver athletic training services to the student-athletes at Grimsley High School (GHS). As the Head AT at GHS, Ami is in constant communication with the coaching staff, parents, school administration, teachers, and others to best serve the student-athletes. She and Kevin Supple, MD work together to provide comprehensive sports medicine care to the Grimsley community.

Prior to joining the Greensboro Orthopaedics team, Ami served as the Head AT for the Frito Lay manufacturing plant in Killingly, CT. She was the first AT to work at the Frito Lay site. As the Head AT of the plant, Ami led a staff of athletic trainers and coordinated the health and wellness of over 800 employees. She developed both staff & employee programs that are now implemented in Frito Lay/Pepsi-Co manufacturing facilities across the country.

Ami’s career also includes both high school and collegiate athletic training experience. She contributes her understanding of sport-related injury and illnesses to her experiences in both of these job settings. It was in these settings where she learned the importance of taking time to get to know each student-athlete and how to act calmly yet, assertive during emergent situations.

Ami’s enthusiasm and passion for providing care and supporting the Grimsley community is remarkable. Ami is largely why the Sports Medicine/Outreach Program at Greensboro Orthopaedics is successful.
