Born and raised in Indiana, I moved to Arizona for a job with the National Park Service through the Student Conservation Association/Americorps. My interest is youth sport programs and my focus will be using programs to help refugee youth. Following sports teams is one of my hobbies, especially the US Womens National Soccer Team and the Chicago Cubs. I also really enjoy traveling. I’ve been to 13 countries for leisure and mission trips. The longest trip was when I studied abroad in Tanzania for a semester in 2014.
