Favorite Sports Memory: I have two favorite memories. My first is during my junior year of high school volleyball in 2011. Kenosha Christian Life had never won a playoff game before, and to be honest the program wasn't great. My sophomore year we went on to win our first ever playoff game, and junior year we won the school's first volleyball Regional Championship. It was awesome to get to be a part of turning the program around and setting it up for success even after I graduated! My second favorite memory is winning my first tournament as a college golfer. Although winning was obviously a great feeling, the best part was that my dad wasn't originally going to make it but ended up surprising me on the first tee, so it was fun to share that moment with him.

Favorite Athlete: Rory McIlroy
