POSITION: 1st Base/Outfield

COLLEGE: University of Arizona

3-Time National Champion at University of Arizona
3-Time 1st Team All-American
3-Time Olympic Gold Medalist

Team USA Olympic Gold Medalist 1996, 2000, & 2004

I won three Olympic Gold Medals with the USA Team. With the ultimate goal achieved, I stood on the podium for the last time and knew that there was more to life than winning championships.
I lost three friends to unexpected deaths in the past eight years and that made me reflect on what really mattered most. My faith helped through those losses and now gives me a foundation of hope and joy.

Students We Impact

Students often lack self esteem and face tremendous peer pressure which may cause them to choose drugs, alcohol or even suicide. We work to see students experience:

  • Place (To belong and be accepted)
  • Purpose (Who am I, why am I here, where am I going)
  • Pain relief (Healing from hurts: physically, emotionally, socially and stop self-medicating)
  • Peace (Anxiety, worry, confusion)
  • Passion (Building confidence as I move forward in life)
