Why did you choose Shenandoah? 

I chose Shenandoah because of the small school atmosphere. SU felt like home as soon as I first arrived on campus and I knew that it would provide me with plenty of opportunity to learn and grow. 

Favorite Class and Professor: 

Sport Psychology taught by Dr. Jessica Peacock 

What do you like most about playing sports at SU? 

My teammates and I have become really close with each other over the past few years. I have also had the opportunity to learn a lot under the guidance of Coach Smith that will set me up for a future in coaching. 

Favorite thing to do in Winchester: 

Spend time in Old Town Winchester.

Favorite SU Athletics Memory: 

Our 3-2 win against Southern Virginia to start off my junior season. 

What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? 

Despite all of the time I spent injured on the sidelines, playing soccer at SU has meant a lot to me. I have learned a lot about myself and how to be a leader despite dealing with personal adversity. I have also been able to set myself up for a future in coaching and will be able to use my experiences here to be able to give back to future generations of soccer players. 

Post-Graduate Plans: 

I will be attending graduate school to further my education in Sport and Exercise Psychology or Human Performance. 

Nobody knows that I...
