Tell me about your family:
I come from a family of five, with two older siblings. My parents push me to be the best version of myself both academically and in athletics. My dad is a physical therapist and works to help see the improvements in many local athletes, along with being the Saturday morning conditioning coach for many sports at the Greenwood High School. My mom works for the local hardware store along with being a major part of running my Grandparents dairy and horse farm. Both my parents set aside time from their busy schedules to make it to all my school events. My siblings are Kaylee and Tragen, both of them attend college, Kaylee is a senior at Saint Cloud State and Tragen a freshman at Western Technical college. When we are all together there is always some laughter and of course butting of heads, but what family doesn’t push each other’s buttons.
Do you come from a sports family:
Yes, both of my parents played sports in high school and so did all of their siblings. My own siblings were three sport athletes as well.
Is there a sport you wish you had played:
If I could have had the opportunity to play a I didn’t, it would have been competitive dance
