I grew up playing at West Houston Soccer Club where my team and I competed in multiple state tournaments, finishing runner-up three times and winning once. I moved clubs to play for Houston Express in 2013 and even played under some current RISE coaches. After high school I attended Texas Lutheran University played soccer all 4 years, finishing every season in the top 4 of the conference. While at TLU I was also a member of the track and field team as a part of a 4 x 400 relay team which was ranked in the top 20 in the nation. I graduated TLU in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I have always had a love and passion for the game which I bring to each training session, game, and tournament I am at with my teams. I am forever grateful to RISE for giving me the opportunity to pass along my passion to all the kids I am privileged to coach!
