I grew up in Des Plaines, Illinois, and played baseball, football and basketball throughout my childhood. I went on to Elk Grove High School and was a member of the football and baseball teams for four years, and also played basketball both freshmen and sophomore years.
During my senior year of high school, I was given an offer to become a student-athlete at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. I was a member of the baseball team during the 2013-2017 seasons as a pitcher. My freshman and sophomore years, I was also a member of the football team as a punter/kicker. I pursued a degree in marketing and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in May 2017.
After my time at Carthage, I was looking for a job where I could combine my passion for sports with my business degree. I found NCSA and realized how committed they are as a company to their student-athletes and families. Their core values as a company showed how much they care for the student-athletes, and seemed like a perfect place to start my career.
My favorite part about working at NCSA is getting to help families during the process of switching from high school to the collegiate level, both academically and athletically. When I am not working at NCSA, I like to watch all Chicago Cubs and Bears games, and am a Game of Thrones fan. I also play winter league basketball and 16 inch softball in the summer with friends.
