Title: National Events Manager

About me: As the national events manager, I handle administrative and event logistics for USA Fencing-hosted national tournaments as well as international tournaments held in the United States.

Before joining USA Fencing, I worked as a sports travel coordinator. Some of my favorite projects include serving as the travel liaison for the European soccer teams Chelsea FC and S.L. Benfica during their tours in America.

I also organized transportation logistics for the U.S. Women's Soccer Team during their official send-off tour across the United States before the 2019 World Cup in France. 

An avid traveler, I have visited more than 30 countries and have lived in four of them — my favorite of these being Japan, which I consider my home away from home.
