College: BYU Hawaii
I played four years of varsity high school softball, one year in Huntington Beach, California and three years in Austin, Texas. I continued my softball career into college at Brigham Young University Hawaii. I absolutely loved my time playing college ball. While there I was an anchor for the team playing in 130 games. When I wasn’t on the field, I was helping my team by keeping a catcher’s book and looking for patterns to help my teammates. I hold the school record for most runners caught stealing, most hit-by-pitches and most walks. We had three different coaching staffs while I was a part of the program, which helped me grow my leadership skills on and off the field.
Since graduating from college, I served a mission for my church for 18 months. So I am working on getting back into playing shape with kick boxing classes, catching for a childhood friend who played at University Hawaii-Manoa, and helping coach at the local high school. Coaching at the local high school has been beneficial to keep up the mental aspect of the game. I work with the varsity catchers on there game and softball knowledge and I am an assistant coach for the junior varsity team. I am working on making an updated player video.
