I chose UMFK because it gave me the option to continue playing basketball, it was affordable, and I liked the small size of it. It was also a contrast and a change of pace from what I was used to. Although most of my coursework dealt with fiction, in my role as a Sports Information Director I do a lot of writing so having practice writing and editing my own work prepared me well for my current job.
UMFK helped me get out of my comfort zone, pushed me to try new things and gain new experiences. Plus, I was able to mingle and make connections with people from all over the world which broadened my horizons a ton. Currently I am living the dream as the Head Women's Basketball Coach at UMFK, also serving as the Sports Information Director and Residence Life Coordinator.
