Future Plans: I plan on attending Gannon University in Erie, PA to earn a bachelors of science degree in Nursing. I would then like to continue my education after becoming a registered nurse, and become a nurse anesthetist. While attending Gannon University, I will also be playing on the Gannon Golden Knights Men’s Soccer team.

Fun Fact: I made it to WPIALs in swimming all 4 years, each year swimmers making WPIALs dye their hair to celebrate. My mom was always against me dying my hair blue since I did it the first year on an Ash Wednesday, and then had to alter serve at church that evening! Which brings me to my favorite quote…

Favorite Quote: “It’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.”

Advice to upcoming Seniors: “Make every moment count.”

Thoughts on senior year ending so abruptly: “It sucks missing out on so many activities and sports. I would have liked to compete in the remainder of my senior season in track and field to see what I was able to achieve.”

Shout Outs/Thank You’s: Shout outs to all my teammates, I enjoyed being your team captain and look forward to checking in on you in your upcoming seasons. Thank you to Coach Joe Everhart for being the greatest coach I have ever had. I will take Joe’s advice and wisdom with me to college and will always remember the valuable lessons Joe has taught me. I owe a great deal of gratitude to Joe for making me the athlete I am today. Lastly I would like to thank my parents for supporting me along my journey. I know I can always count on them to be there for me.
