I was born and raised in a small town in Michigan, and currently call Central Oregon home. I grew up playing pretty much every sport I could, and feel there is a tremendous value in youth sports and activities. After graduating college, I worked in various sales and marketing roles in the sports industry, including stints at both Nike and adidas. Now, as a Fundraising Coach, I'm committed to making an impact on the community by maximizing support for your team or program! In my free time I enjoy playing on multiple softball teams, am an avid golfer, and also enjoy running, hiking, and everything else this part of the country has to offer. I'm also a huge College Football fan - Saturdays in the fall are the best time of year. I'm very excited to be able to bring Vertical Raise to the Central Oregon community to help programs reach and exceed their fundraising goals - and have more rewarding experiences on the playing field, the court, or in the classroom.
