At Three Rivers Local School District, I work as the Assistant Athletic Director.

I have worked with the district since 2012.

My favorite part of working for this district is being (or at least always trying to be) a positive influence for all the students I work with and of course my awesome co-workers.  

In my personal time away from work, I enjoy spending my time with friends and family, being a Xavier basketball season ticket-holder, wasting more time and money on the Reds and Bengals, and playing softball.
