College Club Coordinator
Wilmington CollegeCenter for Service and Civic Engagement
B.S. in Sports Administration, Wilmington College, 2011
What major projects do you work on as a VISTA?
As a VISTA at Wilmington College, I work primarily on a college access program known as College Club at two local sites, Clinton County Youth Council and Blanchester Middle School, in Clinton County. I also work on a monthly newsletter for the Center for Service and Civic Engagement, and oversee the service-placed work-study students in our community.
Why did you choose to be an Ohio Campus Compact VISTA?
During college, I was actively involved with service and the Center for Service and Civic Engagement; with this, I built many relationships with people involved in service at Wilmington College. After graduation, I was asked to apply for the position and I thought it would be the perfect way to continue my service to this college and community.

I am a huge Ohio State Buckeyes and Cincinnati Reds fan! The defining moment of my life so far was my decision to join Tau Kappa Beta fraternity in 2009, their dedication to service changed my life.
Post-VISTA, I would like to attend graduate school, to either study Student Affairs in Higher Education or Sports Administration; and one day be a high school or collegiate Athletic Director.
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” ~ Michael Jordan
