• What do you like most about UCO? “Every part of UCO I absolutely love, but the way UCO welcomes you and the way you feel at home on campus, in the classroom, and on the field is something so special.”

• Who do you most look up to? “I look up to my parents the most because of the unconditional love, support, and guidance they have provided me the past twenty-one years. They have sacrificed more that I could ever imagine to watch me live out my dream of playing college softball. They have also pushed me to be the best version of myself on and off the field and for that I am forever thankful.”

• Goals: “To become a geriatrics occupational therapist after I graduate and attend OT school.”
