Education

Education
2008 - 2010

Bachelor of Arts

Westmont College

While polishing my English skills in a variety of communication classes, I found time to join an intramural softball league during my sophomore year. Playing a scared second baseman, confused right fielder, and weak-armed catcher gave me a deep appreciation for Major League Baseball--and a passion I hold to this day.

2006 - 2008

Associate of Arts

Bellevue College

During my junior and senior years of high school, I enrolled in the Running Start program at Bellevue College, which allowed me to accumulate college credits towards a four-year school.
