Why Did You Decide To Work In Collegiate Athletics: I love working with student-athletes and getting to impact their lives while they are starting to identify who they want to be as adults.

Who Has Influenced You The Most As A Professional - Either As An Inspiration, A Mentor, Or Philosophically: Debby DeAngelis (former AD at Cal State East Bay) was a great mentor who helped shape my philosophy as to what college athletics means to me and why I do what I do. Jackson Stava has been a great mentor who continues to push me and help me grow into a better professional.

Biggest Obstacle Overcome As A Professional: Deciding if I should leave the comfort of my family and move to a new state to continue to grow in my career.

What Does Division II Mean To You: Division II means being both a student who gets to be a regular student in the classroom while still competing at a very competitive level.

Best Advice You’d Give To Student-Athletes: You can achieve anything you put your mind, heart and soul into. Enjoy the growth that the college journey gives you.  Graduation is a great achievement, but the memories you make and friendships you foster will be more of what you will look back at and cherish.

Most Memorable Sports-Related Moment: Hitting my first and only home run in a college or the fun road trips that I took with my teammates.
