Growing up in a small, NH town did not make playing high-level soccer easy. I made the decision to play club in 6th grade, which meant traveling 70 miles one-way for practice. My parents were supportive and I was willing to make the commitment. I started by playing attacking midfielder on the B team for a year and then switched to goalie to be in the starting XI for the A team. After 2 years, I realized I was a midfielder at heart and trained hard to become competitive again. It was this that led me to develop a strong work ethic, integral for my goal to play in college.
Now coming off my junior year, high school season as a captain and soon entering the spring club season in an age group up, I’m no stranger to pushing myself. Working to balancing soccer with strong academic performance has given me structure and organizational skills, which I’ve taken to the classroom and the pitch. With a passion for school and soccer, my talent and experience would be an asset to any team.
