Find out more about me!
After the biggest year of my life I am taking so much needed me time to recover. From graduating from DeVry University with my degree in Business to going to the Olympics to getting engaged- it all has been felt and earned. I am so excited to get to call myself a college graduate, an Olympian, and fiance. The traveling has been great but the friends and family I have been able to spend time with has been life changing in a great way. We always say we will make time and go visit but do we get around to it often enough or ever? I have been blessed with a few more days with my great Aunt before she past away and I was able to see my friends growing family. I became a dog in NYC best friend whenever his owner were not in sight and did a month of yoga. I stayed off the mat then checked in with myself physically and mentally and realised I needed some work after the NYAC tournament. Two surgeries later and some much needed soul searching, I am on the mend and coming to terms with missing this season. Planning a big wedding and going on trips of a life time in-between some low key competitive card games with my parents I am happy. I am not on the mat but I am involved; I have volunteered for a few committees including USA Wrestling Long Range Planning and USAW Women's Sport Committee. I am working closely with Wrestle Like A Girl and getting inspired by young athletes and older coaches everywhere with budding opportunities I have only dreamed of being within reach.
I want you all to know I will be back, but my body and doctors told me it will take time. My shoulder surgery has me down but getting stronger each day. Take care and support a female athlete in your life to dream bigger and to stay confident!
