Upon graduation from Oregon State, the back of his card reads, Moen hoped to serve as a professional trainer.
Moen did go on to serve as a trainer, but his time in the pro game turned out to be brief, four seasons. Instead, he found his future in another field of medicine, as a physicians assistant focusing on orthopedics.
Moen followed his time at Yakima in 1990 with time the next season as the head trainer for short-season Bend. He also served 1991 as an intern for Rebound Sports Medicine in Salem, Ore., according to his 1991 card.
He graduated from Oregon State in 1991, earning his bachelor's in exercise and sport science.
Moen ultimately served as a certified athletic trainer for four seasons, according to a later bio. He then moved into urgent care and occupational medicine.
In 1997, he graduated from Oregon Health and Science University in physician assistant studies. In 2008, he joined to Samaritan Mid-Valley Orthopedics in North Albany, Ore.
Moen continues with Samaritan in 2017 as a physician assistant, assisting in clinical and surgical orthopedic cases.
