Major: Digital Media

Favorite Marywood memory

Playing in the first ever game on the brand new turf field, under the lights.

Next step

I will be representing the United States on the USA Soccer Team at the Maccabi Games in Israel in July. It is a great honor to be selected. After that, I was recruited for grad school/soccer academy at Leeds Metropolitan University in Leeds, England. While at Leeds, I will be studying for my Masters in PR and Communications as well competing for a professional contract in soccer.

Hope to achieve

My ultimate goal is to play professional soccer overseas. My time in Israel as well as my opportunity to study and play soccer in England will hopefully give me the visibility and exposure necessary to help me gain professional status. I love soccer and Marywood gave me the opportunity to play while completing my degree. I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to do what I love every day.
