How Would Others Describe Me:

I started playing competitive soccer with St. Louis Scott Gallagher at the age of 6. Originally, I thought I was a forward. Overtime, I discovered I loved playing goalkeeper. At the age of 7, I started training with Brian Jones at St. Louis Goalkeeping. Throughout my early years of soccer, I played on two teams. One team was with my age group. On this team, I played in the field to develop my foot skills and to learn the in's and out's of field play. The other team I played on was a year above my age. This is where I played goalkeeper. Playing for an older team allowed me to see stronger, faster, and more difficult plays inside the goal. At the age of 10, I started to specialize in the area of goalkeeping. I moved to the Elite Team at Scott Gallagher. It was during this time I started to work on my technique with goalkeeping: diving, fast breaks, crosses, distribution, and communication on the field. While continuing training with St. Louis Goalkeeping, I started to attend goalkeeping camps with Tracy Noonan and Dynasty Goalkeeping (North Carolina). I have continued to work with Tracy on an individual basis a few times a year. This year, I joined Lou Fusz Soccer Club to participate in the Girls Academy Frontier League. I am currently a goalkeeper on the Blue Star Academy 06 team.
I attend Visitation Academy for high school. It is a very strong academic, all girl's school. I love to challenge myself academically, especially in the areas of science, english, and foreign language: latin. I have maintained a solid GPA ranging from 3.7-4.0 each semester of middle school. I am interested in pursuing a scientific field of study in college.
My goal is to attend a strong academic college where I can pursue a scientific major while playing soccer. The size of the school is not important to me, but I would like to play on a soccer team that is competitive at the division 1 or 2 level. My preference would be to play for a team where I can contribute in each game. Ultimately, I would love to continue to work in the sports industry after college: doctor, trainer, physical therapist, or player.
