I got my start around the age of seven, playing competitive soccer here at WSC. I stayed local and attended Pioneer High School playing soccer and basketball for the Patriots. At the same time I was competing at the ECNL level for San Juan Spirits working towards a scholarship to play collegiate soccer. My Junior year I verbally committed to play NCAA Division 1 soccer at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. From 2015-2019 I competed in the Big-West Conference while studying my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.
At the University of Hawaii I was able to achieve many personal and program milestones such as Big-West Goalkeeper of the year (2019) and All-Conference First Team (2019). However, it is not the accolades I am the most proud of. The personal growth I experienced as a 3 year captain helped me find my voice and passion, using my strengths to lift those around me.
Fast forward to present day, in June 2023 I graduate with a Masters Degree in Sport and Performance Psychology. I emphasize the importance of the mental side of sport not only in my coaching and consulting, but in how I approach everyday life. Since 2020 I have been living abroad in Spain, playing soccer at the professional level, learning more about the game, and what it takes to be elite.
I believe we are perfectly positioned to help the person we once were. With that mission in mind I am excited to return to WSC to assist with the development of our young athletes, on and off the field.
