How do you define leadership: “Leadership is having a positive influence on a group around you through your actions. A leader is someone who is quiet, but their presence has an impact on the people around them.”

How do you balance academics, service, and athletics? “I balance all three by staying organized in every aspect and budgeting my time. I give 100% into each through organizing my time to complete and perform well in all aspects.”

What are your future goals? ”I plan to attend and play lacrosse at Drexel University where I will major in health sciences. In the health science field I will focus on physical therapy. I plan to graduate with my doctorate in physical therapy working closely with children. As for lacrosse, I want to coach in the community and eventually coach a local high school team.”
