Sports Idol: Jackie Robinson

Favorite Sports Memory: In 2012 at Viterbo University the National qualifier round was held. During match point of set three when everyone in the gym stood up for our last point in R.W. Beggs Senior Gymnasium for the 2012 season. Thinking about this moment in my sports career still gives me chills to this day. It is a memory that I will never forget.

Future Plans: I am currently going to school for elementary education. I hope to one day find my way back to Eau Claire and teach in one of the schools there. When I was a child I had very inspirational teachers and one day I hope to inspire children the way my teachers inspired me.

Favorite Quote: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4: 6-7
