This is my first year at St. John’s. I was born in Amarillo, Texas and grew up in St. Cloud, Minnesota. I played youth hockey in St. Cloud and high school at St. Cloud Tech. I then played three years of junior hockey with the Granite City Lumberjacks. My last year of juniors I talked to a few different MIAC schools. I really liked the campus and the community at St. John’s, as well as the great academics.

I am currently exploring majors, but I am leaning toward something in Environmental Studies or Biology.

I look forward to enjoying the next four years hear and find a career I enjoy. I would like to stay in Minnesota to stay close to family and the outdoor opportunities here
