Where are you now/what are you up to?

I live in Washington DC and work for a general contractor, Clark Construction. My company has an extensive portfolio of buildings in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area and I am very fortunate to be able to work on some of these high-profile jobs. Currently, I am working as a Project Engineer on the National Law Enforcement Museum, which is walking distance from the National Mall (and my apartment). Outside of work, I spend time enjoying DC, reuniting with BUWS teammates as much as possible, and traveling. I also like to think I still "got it" as I am a 5-time intramural champion with the company soccer team!

What is your favorite memory as a Bison?

Game day + spending time with my best friends = Sundays!

What is your biggest piece of advice to current or aspiring Bucknell Women’s Soccer players?

Make the most of your time being a true student-athlete by working hard, having fun, and building relationships that will last a lifetime. Bucknell is a unique school that offers an excellent education with an amazing soccer program.

What makes you most proud about Bucknell?

Bucknellians have this amazing connection where we huddle in the same cities after college, pass resumes to our superiors because they graduated from Bucknell, or stop someone wearing a Bucknell hat on the street in Italy to chat for 5 minutes and act like we've been friends for years. It makes you appreciate the extensive network created from Bucknell long after you have graduated.

What was the most valuable thing you learned/gained from your time at Bucknell?

Time management, without a doubt! Being a student-athlete, I learned to prioritize my workload, soccer schedule, and extracurricular activities. This is an invaluable skill that has helped me succeed in the workplace.
