Why I Serve

I have always been a sports fan. In high school, I played basketball, softball, volleyball, ran track and field, and was a cheerleader. The television was often set to some sort of game and I worked at a sports store as a teenager. While I have the heart of an athlete, my career was not destined to be on the court. However, my UW education enabled me to still parlay my personal passions into a professional path.

Through UW, I interned at numerous sporting companies and broadcasting outlets, which resulted in my first post-graduation job. As a student, I developed leadership skills both in and out of the classroom that remain a cornerstone of my success. Among other positions, I was elected ASUW Director of Communications and represented my sorority as Panhellenic President. Those experiences molded me into the person I am today and illuminated opportunities I didn’t previously know existed.

My hope as a trustee is to be a voice that bridges the transition from student to young alum and to pay forward my experiences to the next generation. UWAA is so beneficial to recent graduates. It’s a chance to network, connect with mentors and access valuable resources. It also keeps that Husky spirit burning bright. We all bleed purple and gold!
