Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved the game of basketball. I started playing basketball when I was about five years old and never stopped dribbling since that point. Basketball has been a huge part of my life and is something I have enjoyed doing. Playing college basketball has always been a lifelong goal of mine. Basketball is more than a game and has provided me a platform to embrace failure as a learning opportunity and to develop resilience. I have learned many lifelong skills from basketball including: resiliency, leadership, communication, hard work, discipline, time management, teamwork, respect, problem solving, character, creativity, and more. In addition, basketball has been the catalyst for numerous relationships and friendships in my life. My best friends in college are all of my teammates. I am extremely fortunate for all the relationships I have made over the years because of the game of basketball. 


 I have always had a strong passion for all sports. I grew up watching every sport you could possibly think of with my father. I love professional sports (NBA, NHL, MLB, and NFL) and follow and watch these leagues consistently. My family and I are all die hard Boston fans (Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox, and Patriots) and watch these teams all the time. My favorite thing in the world is to attend sporting events. As you can see below, since a young age I have enjoyed going to games. Growing up, there was never a Sunday where my dad and I weren’t watching football all day long. Because of my appreciation for sports, I knew I have always wanted to have a career that involves sports. While growing up in Florida, my best friends parents were both sports marketing agents for famous professional athletes (including Rob Gronkowski, Chad Ochocinco, Frank Gore, Darren Waller, Aaron Jones, and others). Witnessing certain aspects of the behind-the-scene operations has ignited my interest in exploring a potential career path in sports marketing. My goal is to have a career that integrates my love and passion for sports while being successful.


It was sometimes difficult growing up being an only child because I was the kind of kid that sought constant entertainment. I am a very social person and love hanging out with my friends in my free time. My friends make me really happy and I enjoy spending as much time with them as possible. Because I don’t have siblings, many of my closest friends feel like sisters. My friends are very important to me and are like my extended family because they help to keep me grounded. The bonds I share with my friends hold immense value in my life. These connections form an integral part of my life, providing a sense of companionship, understanding, and shared experiences.
