I was born and raised in Naperville, IL and now am lucky enough to call my home Grand Valley State University. I am currently a sophomore studying in the school of communications aiming for an under grad degree in Advertising and Public Relations with a minor in Business. I found Grand Valley through the sport of lacrosse and am able to continue my athletic career in Michigan as well as my academic. When I don’t have to juggle sports and school in the summer I get to spend time with my 2 dogs, 2 parents, and brother. I work as a lacrosse coach for New Wave Lacrosse back in Naperville and try to spend as much time as I can at our cabin in Galena, IL.
I grew up around sports. The competitive and aggressive spirit I acquired through the years came from my brother who was three years older than me and a father who instead of buying me the new makeup palette everyone was getting, would buy me an expert pair of skis or the newest lacrosse head on the market. I’ve grown attached to the world of sports and have no desire to leave it any time soon whether I am in a jersey of my own or supporting a brand I believe in.
I aspire to do a lot of things in my life, but I am still searching for exactly what those things are. So for now, thanks for I’m just rollin’ with the punches.
