Why did you choose Moravian College?

I chose Moravian College because the moment I stepped on campus, I knew I belonged. The opportunities I saw were too great to turn down.

What is your major and why?

My major is Marketing. I chose Marketing because it is a blend of psychology, art, and business all in one! It allows me to think strategically and creatively.

What has been your favorite course at Moravian and why?

I love my Consumer Behavior class. My professor, Dr. Patrick van Esch, captures my interest through making connections between the material and life experiences. 

What are your plans for the future once you finish your degree at Moravian?

I plan to pursue a career in Marketing and look forward to the next chapter of my life.

What is your most memorable moment as a Greyhound?

Scoring a buzzer beater shot my freshmen year to tie up the game and bring us to overtime against Albright.

How has being an athlete helped you as a student and in the classroom?

It has helped me master time management and responsibility balancing school, basketball, and work. 

What is the hardest part of your sport?

The hardest part of my sport is the amount of time we need to commit to it, but I wouldn't want it any other way!

Why do you wear your jersey number? 

I like even numbers!

Name one obstacle or form of adversity you have had to overcome.

When I was young my mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor which devastated me and my family. As upset as I was, I knew I still had to be successful in school to reduce the stress on my parents.

Why is community service important to your role as a student-athlete at Moravian? 

Because I'm fortunate and have many opportunities at Moravian, it is important for me to give back to the community. Coach Spirk provides us with many opportunities to service others. 

What advice do you have for a prospective Moravian College student-athlete?

My advice is to get involved in as many activities as possible. Moravian offers many different organizations to become a part of, each with different opportunities to meet people and make connections. Don't forget to enjoy your time here, it goes so quickly!
