I came to NCSA for the opportunity to use my experience in the recruiting process to benefit others. I attended the University of Wisconsin- Madison where I was a four-year varsity letter winner. During my career competing for the Badgers, I was a three-time All-American, broke four school records, was awarded MVP of the team as a junior and had the pleasure of serving as Team Captain during my senior year. I also competed in the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials and most recently was inducted into Palatine High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
After college, I took the chance to give back to the programs that taught me so much and provided me with all of the opportunities that I had. I spent five years coaching at both the high school and club level. When I learned about NCSA, I jumped at the chance to help young student-athletes with recruiting because even while being highly ranked during my high school years, the recruiting process was still overwhelming at times.
I am fortunate that NCSA allows me to use my experience to help guide families and give them the best chance to find the right place to compete in college and get the education they are looking for. The recruiting process is complicated, and there is no real handbook on how to handle this important life decision. I am very thankful I get the chance to mentor families in the pursuit of their dreams.
