Keene State College 2011
Originally from Lowell MA. Most of my life I grew up in Londonderry NH with my two younger sisters and my mom and dad. After High school, I went to Keene State College, there I fell in love with the human body and Athletic Training. Once I graduated I needed to get out of New England and wanted to see different parts of the country. So I applied for internships in Florida, Colorado, and California.
I ended up in Florida at a Division I school called Florida Gulf Coast University. A one year internship quickly turned into two years. While I was down there I worked with the Womans Soccer Team, and we won the conference championship, we made it to the NCAA's in our first year as being an NCAA Division 1 program. It was very exciting. Then, the second year I was there I worked with the Woman's Swimming and Diving Team, another team that won the conference championship. I also worked with the cross country team, cheerleaders, and worked closely with the Basketball team. The second year I was there the basketball team made it to the sweet 16 in the march madness tournament. That was such an adventure.
Although Florida was sunny and warm, and the beaches were some of the best I have ever seen, I decided it was a better place to visit than to live. Being a true New England girl, I moved back to NH, and have been happy with my decision. I like being closer to my family and I think there is nothing better than New England in the fall. I still would like to travel and see/ work in other parts of the country and the world.

I am most happy when... When I have time to slow down, be with my family or friends and just relax.
