Highlight of your HU athletic career: Throwing a perfect game in Arizona my sophomore year in front of my family from out there that I hadn’t seen in 10 years.

What are your plans after graduation? I plan on getting a job as an RN in the NICU at one of the hospitals around Huntington or South Bend.

Why did you choose HU? I wanted to go to a smaller university because I had grown up going to small private schools. I liked the idea of smaller class sizes and I was given the opportunity to fulfill my dream of playing softball in college.

What is one of the things you love most about HU? The nursing program, it changed my life. Not only have I received the best education possible to prepare me for my career, but I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and gotten close to all of my professors. It feels like a family, not a department. 

How have you grown in your faith since coming to HU? Absolutely. HU put me back on the right track to Christ and I have never been so close to Him in my life.
