Aisling joined the Sacramento Kings Health and Performance staff in 2019. Her journey into sports medicine began in 2007, when she graduated from Trinity College Dublin in her native Ireland, with a BSc in Physiotherapy.

While playing soccer for the Irish Women’s National team, she earned an athletic scholarship to pursue her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Stony Brook University, NY. In 2011, Aisling completed an APTA-credentialled sports physical therapy residency at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, before going on to become a board certified specialist in sports physical therapy. She then spent five years working within the sports rehabilitation department at Hospital for Special Surgery. During this time, she decided to undertake a BSc in Athletic Training at Hofstra University. This led to more opportunities within professional sports, and prior to joining the Sacramento Kings, Aisling spent one season working with New York City Football Club and two seasons with the Brooklyn Nets as Director of Rehabilitation.

Aisling is a Certified Athletic Trainer (NATA), a licensed physical therapist (APTA), a board-certified specialist in sports physical therapy (SCS), a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (NSCA), and a Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM). She is committed to ongoing learning and personal development, not only relating to injury prevention and rehabilitation, but also to maximizing the potential of each player she has the opportunity to work with, in body, mind and spirit.

Aisling loves to exercise outdoors, including hiking, biking and trail running, and is an advanced-level scuba diver.
