Professional Accomplishments


My work with the local youth soccer club gave me the chance to volunteer for a special needs and disabled summer camp for children. We were awarded the State Volunteerism Award by PA Representative Petrarca for our work with disabled kids using soccer as a teaching outlet.


In June of 2016 I graduated with Honors from Kiski Area High School. Throughout my four years in school, I was involved in clubs such as Mock Trial, Student Council Leader, Future Business Leaders of America, 4H, Musical, Fall Drama Club, and maintained a job with the Athletic Department.


I enlisted in the Air Force as an aircraft maintainer and graduated top ten percent of my class with Honors. I went on to work at the PA Air National Guard Base in Moon Township as a Guardsman.

Personal Information

Born in Rochester, New York as the oldest of four children my family moved to PA in 2001. I spend my time often reading books throughout the years of history and writing for the school newspaper. I am a product of a busy soccer household and have a passion for all things sports especially the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team. I have traveled all over the world both through work and pleasure and enjoy seeing new countries.

In January of 2019 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma. After battling through six months of chemotherapy, the cancer relapsed causing the need for further treatment. In late March 2020 through August of 2020 I underwent further chemo and a stem cell/bone marrow transplant to finally beat cancer. In March of 2020 prior to treatment, I married my high school sweetheart of eight years. He currently serves overseas in the Army and has been stationed across the globe.
