I am originally from Southeastern Arizona. At Tombstone High School, I was a three-sport varsity athlete playing volleyball, softball and cheerleading. I was captain for all three sports 2010-2012. During that time, I also played for the AZ Panic! travel softball team and competed in various equestrian rodeo events in Cochise County. I went on the compete as a Division 3 athlete in softball and lacrosse at Saint Mary’s College. There I was acting Secretary for the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). I collaborated with other athletes on my campus and other colleges in our division to address student athlete needs and goals. Following my collegiate career, I coached Varsity Softball in Western Michigan and taught in Texas. Switching gears into a new sport, in 2021 completed my first marathon.

I have a passion for sports and education which led me to NCSA. I understand how intimidating the recruiting process can be which is why I have found my home here as a Recruiting Coordinator. I joined the team at NCSA to help student-athletes continue competing in the sports that they love in an environment that fits their individual needs. Our passion to help athletes and our community plays a crucial role in our company culture. Here at NCSA, we are team in every sense of the word and our sport is helping dreams come true.

I enjoy playing slow-pitch softball and am training for my next marathon. I currently reside in the Metro-Houston area with my wife and dog.
