TK Kennedy began her career at Harvard in 1983, following the completion of a master's degree in exercise science from the University of Massachusetts. She used her platform as a Harvard staff member to take on a leadership role in the local athletic training community and was instrumental in the development and implementation of athletic training licensure within the Commonwealth. Twice she was elected President of Athletic Trainers of Massachusetts (ATOM).
Kennedy holds the title of approved clinical instructor at both Boston University and Northeastern University. She is a certified strength and conditioning specialist, in addition to her licensure and certification as an athletic trainer. Currently, Kennedy takes care of the athletes on the baseball and women's volleyball teams.
In any free time that she has, TK can be found shooting with the Second Amendment Sisters, fishing (TU member), playing in the woods on her land in NH, restoring antique barns, or volunteering with various local charities.
