What was your major at St. Mike’s and when did you graduate? I graduated in 2001 with a history major and religion minor. Did you take part in any clubs or activities at St. Mike’s that were important to you or shaped your experience there? Yes – I played for four years on both the women’s lacrosse and rugby teams. My time participation in college athletics certainly has had a positive impact on my life, not only creating lifelong friendships with amazing people but also skill-building in learning to work within and lead teams, generating self-discipline to balance multiple priorities, and setting and reaching for goals.
