When Ciara started at Madison College she wasn’t sure where she would end up, and she definitely had no idea that she would work for the NFL with the Houston Texans.
Ciara Burgi was homeschooled until she was 17 in her hometown of Baraboo. Having never been to an in person school, Madison College was a safe and welcoming place to attend, allowing her to explore her interests knowing that she would be ok even if she failed at some things. But instead of failing, Madison College ended up being the perfect recipe for her success, leading her to the next right step. After two years at the college she found it easy to transfer to UW-Milwaukee, where she thrived following her training at Madison College. There she received her diploma in Kinesiology and Exercise Science. It wasn’t too long after that she decided to keep chasing her dream and applied to a PhD program at Duke University. She received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy and then landed a dream job in the NFL with the Houston Texans as a Performance Assessment Coordinator.
She loves the job because not only does she get to be active and on her feet all day, while wearing workout clothes, but she also has a relationship focused job.
We are proud of you Ciara! Keep doing great things!
