I started playing soccer when I was 5 years old in my home country, Venezuela, where I was able to become a national champion at the age of 12 years old. Being able to get a high quality education in the area of business while playing soccer at a competitive level was always a goal of mine. This amazing sport allowed me the opportunity to come to the US on an athletic scholarship and compete at the DII level at a Jesuit school called Wheeling Jesuit University. This was a very diverse program that brought in players from different parts of the world and gave me a unique experience.
During my 4 years at the school I competed in one of the hardest conferences in DII soccer, the MEC. I was able to play in 2 conference semi-finals and in 1 conference final in which I gained the distinction of All-Tournament. Thanks to this opportunity I was able to visit new cities inside the US and make friends with people from all over the world.
The recruiting process can be a little overwhelming sometimes. As a Recruiting Coordinator at NCSA my goal is to help families to achieve their goals and to make that process as smooth as possible. Knowing that I am making a difference and having a positive impact for all the families that come to us for guidance during their recruiting journey is an extremely rewarding feeling.
In my spare time I like to work out, play soccer, spend time with family and friends and to watch all kinds of sports.
