What was the best part of your experience as a student at BMHS?

The best part of my experience was the community at BMHS. Everyone knows one another, and most importantly cares for each other. The legacy of families at BMHS is something truly special. I was part of the community from the time I was born, and to continue to see and stay in touch with not only peers, but teachers, faculty, parents, and coaches shows how unique and amazing BMHS is. 

What is one of your favorite memories as a student?

One of my favorite memories was being at the state championship game, in 2017, up in Sacramento. There were maybe 100 of our students there, but we were the loudest and proudest ones in the arena.

Who was your favorite teacher and why?

My favorite teacher was Mrs. Fabbri. I was fortunate enough to have her for 2 years of Spanish. Not only is she an amazing teacher, but an even better person. She wants every student to succeed and learn, while still having fun.

Life after high school:

I attended Seattle University where I obtained my BS in Kinesiology and a minor in Psychology. I currently still attend SU, and am in my 2nd and final year of my grad program. In June, I will graduate with my MBA in Sport and Entertainment management. Currently I work for Seattle Sounders FC as a Business Operations Fellow. I also work game days for the Seattle Storm as a Statistics Technician. I would like to continue in professional sports working in on either the team or business side of operations.
What is one fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about me is I collect a shirt or magnet from all the new places I go.
