I was born and raised in the East Bay, which is where my dreams to become a professional athlete started. Growing up, I played soccer for Mustang and De Anza soccer clubs, as well as at San Ramon Valley High. I had the privelage of playing NCAA DI soccer at the University of South Florida and Xavier University, where I also earned my MBA. I went on to play 7 years of professional soccer throughout the US and abroad. After retiring in 2022, I returned home to the East Bay to coach NCAA DI soccer at Saint Mary's College. I decided to join Vertical Raise because I wanted to help serve even more athletes and students across the Bay Area. Fundraising is essential for sports clubs, high school teams, and youth organizations to operate and excel. Working with us, Bay Area programs not only get Vertical Raise's best-in-class platform and processes, but they get a hands-on rep that helps them raise as much money as possible. I got to live out my dream of being a college and pro athlete and now my passion is helping the next generation have the very best experiences in their chosen sport or program- and fundraising is the key to making that happen!
