I am originally from Joliet Illinois. After high school, I enrolled at Calvin University in Grand Rapids Michigan, where I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in kinesiology in 2018. After Calvin, I enrolled at the University of Texas at Arlington, where I earned a Masters of Science degree in athletic training in 2020. After Graduating from UTA, I worked as an athletic trainer for Mansfield Timberview High School for the 2020-2021 school year. And that brings us to now, where I am the co-head athletic trainer/sports medicine teacher here at Lovejoy High School.
