I was born and raised in small rural community in Dousman, Wisconsin. Growing up with three very athletic brothers, they taught me to be just as competitive as they were. My brothers and I were best friends and the best of playmates. From little on, my parents, teachers and coaches taught me the importance of setting goals. Achieving self goals require support from family, peers and teammates. Goal achievement is the result of focus, dedication, determination, self-discipline and sacrifice.
With education being the first most important goal on my list, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison with a degree in Human Development & Family Studies. My college degree aligns well in supporting children and adults who are struggling nutritionally and less fortunate; therefore, I chose to recently form a partnership with Rise Against Hunger. I aim to support Rise Against Hunger in reaching their goal to end world hunger by 2030 by providing monetary donations and personal hands-on efforts in the upcoming months and years.
Simultaneously, I aim to reach a goal I have been working toward since I was a little girl; which has involved reaching many goals along the way. In 2014, I achieved the first step of this milestone, becoming an Olympian on the Women’s Hockey Team where I earned a silver medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. I am now on a mission to win a GOLD medal in February at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
