What is your ideal dream job?

"A special education life skills teacher! I have my dream job!"

What accomplishments make you most proud of yourself?

"My biggest accomplishment is becoming a Special Education teacher. I am currently teaching while taking Master’s classes in special education from Wichita State University to learn more about how I can teach and support students to be successful community members after high school. I am also proud that I was selected to be an Athletics coach for the 2019 SO World Games in Abu Dhabi; it that changed my life by allowing me once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memories, while embracing cultures from around the world and bringing me closer to lifelong friends from Team USA. I am also proud to be a SONA certified fitness train-the-trainer, which allows me to train and support other coaches across Kansas in promoting healthy activities and lifestyles for our athletes."

How has Special Olympics changed your life?

"Special Olympics has had a huge part in shaping my entire life. Volunteering and coaching have given me confidence, helped my leadership skills, and allowed me to meet some of the best people in the world. It has helped me open my mind and my heart, and given me a purpose in life (giving back to the community and making the world a better place). I’ve also met some of my best friends at SO."

What does attending USA Games mean to you?

"We started our Unified Volleyball team in 2011. Since then, the team has grown so much, so I am excited to see all of our hard work pay off on the national stage. Also, I can’t wait to form that special relationship and bond with all of Team Kansas that comes with having a shared experience of a lifetime. I am also looking forward to meeting people from all over the U.S. and hopefully seeing some old friends from World Games!"

What is something interesting about you that most people don’t know?

"I am a certified Open-Water Scuba Diver."
