I do this work because the value of recreation in a university setting is invaluable. It creates a space for students to stay engaged and active on campus, while also creating a sense of belonging. The environment that exists within University Recreation is truly one of a kind. Knowing that I can help foster that welcoming and unique environment is what motivates me to come in to work every day.

You would never know

I love musical theatre. Most people don’t assume this about me, because I chose to pursue a career in a sports-related field. But I was involved in theatre and dance growing up and became obsessed with all things Broadway and off-Broadway. Some of my favorite musicals include “Wicked”, “Dear Evan Hansen”, and “Heathers: The Musical”. However, my all-time favorite musical is “Rent”.  

Favorite movies

My top 3 favorite movies of all time are “Heathers”, “Bring It On”, and “Legally Blonde”. 

To Write Love On Her Arms

I’ve been a long-time advocate for mental health awareness. I believe that support for mental health is vital in any environment, but especially on college campuses. I’ve been involved with an organization called To Write Love On Her Arms that advocates for mental health awareness and I strive every day to create a setting where the conversation around mental health is an important one.
