As a child growing up in the Michigan hockey community I was heavily influenced by the sport. As soon as I laced up my skates for the very first time I knew I wanted to play all throughout high school and into college. My goals throughout the next couple of years is to become the best and strongest skater I can be. I plan on not only working on my own hockey skills but helping out others whilst I can. I know that if I work as hard as I can I will accomplish my dreams and turn them into a success. I aspire to be the best athlete I can while also being the best student I can be. Throughout my academic career I have balanced good grades while also playing hockey, which I plan on continuing onto my further education.
