Skills

Leadership

Leading is something that comes naturally to me, and I try my best to use my leadership skills in order to help people reach their full potential. The best example of this in my daily life is through sports and exercise. As a group fitness instructor I had to constantly be encouraging my participants to continue on and push harder. Also, as a member of the Women’s Rugby team at Ashland I would to push my team to the next level during every game. 

French
I speak fluent French and communicate regularly with native French speakers. I was very lucky and had the chance to participate in a 10 month long  exchange program to Belgium following my graduation from High School. In Belgium I had 2 host families, attended school regularly, and quickly learned to speak the French language.
