  • ABOUT ME

    “Every moment of one’s existence, one is growing into more or retreating into less.”

    ―Norman Mailer

     

    I am a 2019 graduate of Stevenson University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Human Services. My commitment to my studies shows that I am a dedicated, hard-working student. This, coupled with my time as a student-athlete, has helped me become a well-rounded individual. I've maintained Dean's List academic status 7 out of 8 semesters. I'm also a Mid Atlantic Conference two year All-American, three year All-Region ,All-Conference and All-Academic athlete. I am also a NCAA "2019 Woman of the Year" honoree, who just completed four years of eligibility for volleyball. However, my competitive spirit has driven me to compete for two more years on the Track & Field team as a Triple Jumper and Long Jumper, all while pursuing a Master's degree in Communications.

     

    I'm interested in a position that will combine my three areas of studies into a fulfilling career. I have a deep interest in learning, reforming, and contributing to our nation’s criminal justice system. I thrive in settings that allow me to interact, communicate, and study a multitude of different people. But for now, I work at the local Jewish Community Center. I hold three different positions there: I am a Fitness Center Consultant, a Member & Guest Services Associate and I also work the Welcome Desk at the Pool Park. These positions, along with my previous positions as a Volleyball Camp Counselor, Assistant Coach and Team Manager, fulfill my passion for helping others and sharing what I've learned in regards to fitness and health.

     

    In addition to all this, my current internship at the Maryland State's Attorney's Office as an Evidence Specialist gives me the opportunity to increase my knowledge of the criminal justice system. This temporary position is preparing me to be an effective advocate for those I may serve in the future.

  • Academic Honors

    Here are some of the ways I was recognized throughout the academic years!

    Presidential Fellowship Scholarship (2015 - 2019)

    Received a full scholarship to attend Stevenson University based on high school academics, extracurricular activities, and community service.

    Dean’s List (2015 - 2019)

    Acquired a GPA higher than 3.5 in the fall and spring semesters of my freshman year (2015 - 2016), the fall and spring semesters of my sophomore year (2016 - 2017) and the fall semester of my junior year (2017). During the spring semester of my junior year (2017), I received honor roll status which requires a GPA higher than 3.2.

  • Athletics

    VOLLEYBALL

    (2015 - 2018)

     

    One of the main reasons that I decided to attend Stevenson University was because I was being recruited for volleyball. Being a member of this team is one of my greatest memories from my time there. During my four years as starter, I helped my team win four MAC Conference Championships. We also competed in the NCAA tournament all four years. During my tenure, my team earned a regional ranking of #2 and a national ranking of #15.

     

    TRACK & FIELD

    (2019 - Present)

     

    Once my four years of NCAA eligibility in volleyball was completed, I found myself at a crossroad. I knew that I didn't want to be just a regular student, with a lot of free time on my hands. I'd been participating in athletics since I was six years old. However, I knew that I didn't have any experience in any other sports. Eventually, my competitive spirit drove me to give Track & Field a try and I decided to join the team as a Triple Jumper and Long Jumper. Surprisingly enough, it actually came very naturally to me. This past spring, I placed 5th in the MAC Conference for Long Jump. I enjoy it, and I've decided to continue with it while I pursue my Master's degree in Communications.

  • Other Experiences

    BODY-WORN CAMERA (BWC) UNIT

    Internship at the State Attorney's Office

    (January, 2019 - Present)

     

    This past semester I applied for an internship at the State Attorney's Office of Baltimore County. Three days a week I would travel to the courthouse in Towson, MD and help the Evidence Specialists prepare the necessary evidence for trial. This included sorting, analyzing, and editing the camera footage. I was also asked to note (known as "marking") the footage for significant events, as well as, redact (known as 'shielding") all personal identifying information. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to continue on as a volunteer after the internship was completed.

     

     

     

    REPRESENTING STUDENT ATHLETES ON & OFF THE COURT

    Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)

    (September, 2015 - Present)

     

    My experience as a student athlete has afforded me many opportunities to improve my work ethic, time management skills and people skills. I've been able to take what I've learned on the court and apply it to experiences off the court.

     

    Volleyball has also given me the opportunity to give back to the sport I love by mentoring and teaching other young volleyball players through my experience as a Team Captain, Team Manager, Volleyball Camp Counselor, and an Assistant Coach.

     

    In addition to that, volleyball has allowed me the chance to speak to groups of people about my experience as a Student Athlete through the platform of FCA. Just this past March, I was asked to be one of the guest speakers for their Regional Banquet.
