About me: I joined USA Fencing  in May of 2023 from Fighting Irish Media at the University of Notre Dame, where I served as an Assistant Athletics Communication Director. At Notre Dame, I oversaw social media, content, and media relations for several sports, including the national championship fencing teams in 2022 and 2023. I earned a bachelor’s degree in mass communication and a master’s degree in sports management from Frostburg State University, which is where I was first introduced to being a athletic communications professional. 

In my free time my husband and I take our dog Buzz on walks around the Notre Dame campus where he can bark at every squirrel that is in his eye sight! We also enjoy rewatching Friends and then building the Lego sets of the iconic apartment and coffee shop. We are on to the Star Wars Legos next!
