"During my undergraduate years, I played college soccer
at the University of North Georgia where I fell in love with
athletics and I learned I wanted to pursue a career in the field.
Getting my graduate degree at the UWG was the perfect opportunity
because I was able to earn a master's degree in sport management
while also serving as the graduate assistant coach for the soccer
team which provided me with very valuable experience. After graduating
this December from West Georgia, I was quickly hired as the assistant
women's soccer coach at Oglethorpe University where I get to put
everything I learned at UWG to use!"
