Favorite sport to play? How about to watch?
Favorite sport to play, ice hockey! Gymnastics is my favorite to watch. Their athletic ability is amazing!
What is your experience with sports?
I have been a multi-sport athlete all of my life. I come from a family of athletes, with my mom being a former DIV. I diver in college, my dad playing football, and both of my older brothers were also athletes. My two main sports in high school were hockey and soccer. I currently play DIV. I women’s hockey at St. Cloud State University.
What has drawn you to the sport psychology world?
There have been a number of items that have drawn me to the sport psychology world. I knew that I wanted to be a sport psychologist when I had personally experienced the high demand of being an athlete. I would have loved to have had a sport psychologist at that point, but my athletic department did not provide one. With my experience and understanding of the sport and the societal pressures, I would love to be able to help and give back.
What is your educational background and future aspirations?
I am currently a senior pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at St. Cloud State University. I plan on attending graduate school Fall of 2019, at Adler University. I will be earning a Master’s degree in counseling, specializing in sport and health. I look forward to working with high school and collegiate athletes to enhance their athletic performance. Further down the road, I would love to give back to the educational system and teach
courses in sport psychology!
