I am a senior here at Saint John’s University. My path to get here started at Roseville Area High School where I played three years of varsity hockey and became the Captain of the team. After graduation in 2013 I went on to play two years of junior hockey in the NAHL. I signed a tender with the Odessa Jackalopes down in west Texas where I played my entire first year of juniors, down in the south division. My second year of Junior Hockey was spent playing for the Minnesota Wilderness under Coach Corey Millon. It was a great experience being close to home with many familiar faces. We were a great team which made it a lot of fun as we went on to win the league’s Robertson Cup National Championship. When deciding on where to go to school I wanted somewhere that would give me the all-around best college experience with the opportunity to keep playing hockey. I chose Saint John’s because of the school’s great reputation and the community and culture met the high standards I was looking for. Many of my close friends already were students here and they praised the school. Coach Schueller first talked to me in high school along with keeping in touch with me during juniors, I really liked the interest he and his staff showed in me. It was a no brainer when deciding to come here and I couldn’t be happier with the decision as my first two years here have already been a fantastic experience.
I am majoring in Finance/Accounting with a minor in Economics. I am very interested in the field of Investments. Learning about the stock-markets and how it is impacted caught my attention. The idea of gambling based on risk-return is an interesting concept. My father, sister, and brother-in law who have similar careers, along with other relatives have influenced me and encouraged me to explore this career path. Also I have spent many summers as a member/caddy at North Oaks Golf Club where I have had the privilege of meeting many successful people who I have been able to learn and take advice from. Outside of hockey I really enjoy golfing (All-State in High school).
I am excited about my future goals. I plan to hopefully live in a Twin Cities Suburb. I would really like to have a cabin a few hours away so I can get away on the weekend and enjoy the lake life. I hope to be a member of a nice country club as soon as that becomes an achievable reality. All of this of course would come after getting married and starting a family. I would love the opportunity to coach hockey at some point but probably at a younger level like youth hockey. My dream job would be to work as a financial planner, stockbroker, or Investment Banker. I feel that being older than traditionally aged students in my grade is a great advantage as I have more wealth of life experience to draw on. I will use the hard work, leadership, and perseverance that I learned through hockey in my everyday life and career.
