My favorite moment on the track…
Attending the Eastern College Athletic Conference and finishing 25th and 26th in the nation for the 60- and 200-meter dash

Being an athlete, I…
Have learned a multitude of skills that are transferable to the business world. I understand the value of teamwork, I handle pressure well, and I am coachable and willing to learn. In addition, being an athlete has created a great sense of discipline, a strong work ethic, and has taught me the importance of time management.

From Behrend, I…
Plan to further my education in Behrend’s MBA program in conjunction with being an assistant coach for track and field and cross country. Upon obtaining my MBA, I plan to enter the workforce and become an Operations Manager.

I am more than my sport, I…
Am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a member of Lambda Sigma National Honors Society, a Student Government representative, a volunteer, and ultimately I am a college student.

Giving back is important because…
It allows your Alma Mater to grow and it supports the next generation of students and alumni. Whether you are donating your money or your time, everyone should want to see their Alma Mater thrive. I remember my freshman economic professor lecturing about how we should value our future college diploma like a share of stock. The value of your degree is dependent on the value of your school.

If I could tell a donor one thing…
I would say thank you! With your support, I am able to train and compete on one of the best outdoor track facilities in the country. I am also able to learn and live in a state-of-the-art campus and have phenomenal resources to expand my education.
