Best memories from your Valpo days:
The times spent with my teammates in the dorms or in some events around campus.
How Valpo prepared you for your career path:
My time at Valpo prepared me for life far beyond just the lessons learned in the classroom. I have built great connections and learned how to develop relationships and overcome challenges in the work environment.
Because of soccer, I’ve traveled to 11 different states just this season. The list includes California, Arizona, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin, and South Carolina.
