At Cowley, Cravens is a student ambassador, a student assistant for the Sid Regnier Bookstore, and is a student athletic trainer. She became interested in athletic training for a career after suffering a shoulder injury while playing tennis in high school.

After graduating from Cowley, the pre-athletic training major plans to transfer to Pittsburg State University to pursue a degree in exercise science with the hope of one day becoming an athletic trainer for a professional sports team.
