Personal: 

I am currently a junior here at Saint John’s. I was raised in Lakeville, Minnesota until I decided to transfer to Eagan my freshman year of high school. I played 3 years at Eagan high school and decided to play my senior year in Corpus Christi Texas playing in the NAHL. I played a full season in Texas and the next year was traded to Fairbanks Alaska, then the Minnesota

Magicians and then finally ending the year in Johnstown Pennsylvania. Playing on so many different teams taught me a lot about myself and how I handle adversity. I chose St. Johns because of the great reputation it had in academics and in hockey. My family and I fell in love with the campus on my visit last December and I knew right away that St. Johns would be the best fit for me.

I am currently undecided in my major but I am thinking about sociology. I think I would like to have a career in law enforcement someday and a major in sociology would give me the best opportunity to do so. I am interested in this because I love helping people and I think that would be really cool if I could make that into a career.

I think my dream job would be to be a Minneapolis police officer and to one day lead my own department. I love the area of Minneapolis and could see myself living there the rest of my life. My family has deep ties in the community and I would love to be a part of that for a long time. I am excited to see what the future has in store for me in college, and beyond.
