WHAT DO YOU DO AT CAPTAINU?
My job at CaptainU is making your life easier! I’m new to the team but learning quickly. My priority is making sure that your experience using the site goes as smoothly as possible. I work with athletes and parents to guide them in communicating with coaches, attending events, and updating their profiles. We have a great team in place here in the Denver office so please feel free to reach out if there is anything we can do to improve your experience.
DID YOU PLAY SPORTS IN COLLEGE?
I did not play in college, but I had an extensive high school career playing basketball. I played for my school, club teams, and rec league teams, averaging about 4-5 full seasons of basketball per year. I remember what it was like to constantly playing in various tournaments and events and I wish I had a tool like CaptainU back then to help! I still play ball regularly and try and relive the glory days.
TALK ABOUT YOUR EDUCATION & BACKGROUND:
I attended Louisiana State University and earned a degree in History with a focus on Medieval and ancient greek and roman history. LSU football is a bit of an obsession and I can be found cheering on the Tigers every Saturday night in the fall. I spent a summer studying abroad in Italy to further that education and still passionately devour any history books from that time period. After college, I moved back to Denver and spent some time doing administrative and customer service work for a law firm and the Colorado Athletic Club. I joined the CaptainU customer support at the beginning of the summer season and I am excited to be a part of the team!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF CAPTAINU?
I’m pretty avid about personal fitness and enjoy working out 5-6 times/week. I’ve recently been delving into nutrition and thereby gained an appreciation for cooking! On the weekends, I love heading to the park with a group of friends for some fun in the sun. I like to draw and have been studying calligraphy in my free time indoors.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE FOR CAPTAINU ATHLETES?
Be proactive! Coaches will appreciate you taking the initiative and seeing a completed profile! Filling out your profile with all of your stats, clips, pictures and information shows that you’re motivated. Let you passion for you sport bleed through into your profile! This is an exciting time for you and everyone supporting you so take full advantage, have fun, and be outgoing!
ANY LAST THOUGHTS?
