"The ability to work with college and sport club athletes has shown the importance of maintaining the enjoyment and fulfillment that sports bring to current and former athletes in various realms of the sports industry; including myself. Athletics has provided inspiration through education personally and my goal is to do the same for current athletes of any collegiate realm."
