3. Why did you choose the Mount?
I chose the Mount because of the smaller class size and personal environment. The Mount offers so much you can benefit from.

4. What field did you pursue after graduation? How was the Mount instrumental in preparing you for your future career path?
The career I pursued after graduation was working in professional sport. I took the role of Kit Manager with FC Cincinnati. Working with all the teams training and travel equipment and gear for the team.

On campus my involvement at the Mount was based around sports. I captained the Mount’s Soccer team and helped lead the team to the playoffs.

8. How would you rate your educational experience at the Mount, and how was it a strong fit for you?
My education at the Mount was top notch. I had professors who had worked in sport and gave real life examples of what to expect. Without these real accounts of what it is like to work in sport, I do not think I would have had as much success and drive as I have.
