Interests: I am a first-year master's student in Recreation, Sport, and Tourism. I am currently working under Dr. Monika Stodolska and Kimberly Shinew for their continued research with the Urbana Park District. I completed my undergrad at Eastern Illinois University in 2017 studying Recreation Administration. My passions and aspirations are in summer youth camps, specifically working with ages 8-16 in outdoor recreation. But I also have a strong background in Aquatics, pools and open water, pre-pandemic I was the Aquatic and Program Director for an indoor water park located in Dundee Michigan.
