General Profile Information
Hockey

I was nominated by both teammates and coaches to be the Captain of my Carolina Eagles Elite Junior team for the 2018-19 season. I am a top-notch student and am planning on going to college for a BS in Nursing and then to Medical School. My near-term goal is to play hockey in college at the DI-DIII level for a college with nursing and medical school degree options. My character and work ethic are traits that all previous coaches remark about and which will be an asset to any future teams and coaches I play for. My ultimate goal and dream is to play competitive college hockey while receiving a fantastic education at a University where I intend to study Nursing, ultimately preparing me to apply for Medical School after undergrad, in the ultimate pursuit of becoming a Cardiac Surgeon. I have always kept academics the main focus and I strive to excel academically every day. One of the principles I have built my life and character around is to never give up. There have been many times I have been tempted to quit or get discouraged in hockey. I am a very dedicated and driven individual. I am constantly setting and changing my goals and striving to meet and excel beyond them. I work well under pressure, think rationally and am mentally tough. Hockey has been an amazing tool to mold my character and prepare me for life beyond the ice and even beyond the classroom. Outside of a crazy academic and hockey schedule, I started and own my own auto detailing business, in which I have learned so much about owning and running a business, and the car detailing industry. My business website that I developed on my own is: https://wakeforestautodetailing.com/
