Favorite thing about running for LC:

My favorite thing about running for LC is my team. My team is my family at LC and the experiences I’ve had with them and the things I’ve been able to learn from them have been invaluable. My favorite thing about running is the way it lets me get out of the school bubble. There is nothing better for alleviating stress than escaping into Tryon for an hour or so.

Activities on campus:

I am involved in student-athlete advisory committee, ASLC, and the student-athlete mentor program. My favorite is definitely SAAC because I love the events we put on and enjoy our partnership with Special Olympics Oregon. SAAC is always trying to bring people across campus together and do positive community outreach.

favorite thing about major:

I am an International Affairs major because when I came to college I realized that I wanted to have opportunities to live in other parts of the world. I am fascinated by foreign relations and global politics, and I hope to have the opportunity to live and work abroad in the future.

Future goals:

For the rest of my time at LC I hope to continue my involvement in the athletic department and in ASLC. My main goal for the next season is to stay healthy, so that I can contribute to reaching our goals as a team at the conference and regional levels. As far as career goals, I’m hoping to someday work in the State Department.

Random facts:

I am obsessed with how great Colorado is. Nutella is the best food ever invented. My favorite color is blue.
