I am a teammate. I have been playing sports my entire life and have learned the importance of working with others. Preaching "there's no 'I' in 'team,'" I have always put my teammates first and developed a drive to win while encouraging those around me to succeed. Years playing softball, volleyball, and surfing has taught me these skills that I take with me into the future.
I am a daughter. The bearer of the family name, the legacy, and the pride and joy of my parents. They have taught me all I need to know and shaped me into the young woman I am today. They taught me to always follow the right path, make good choices, but always be whoever I want to be. Both coming from fields in law enforcement, they have inspired me to follow my passion for forensics and continue the family tradition of solving crimes.
