New Jersey Swimming
I am excited to be running for the eastern zone athlete director after serving 2 years as the eastern zone junior athlete rep. In the past, I served as the NJ junior and senior rep as well as on many committees on both the zone and LSC level. I have been swimming basically my whole life and it has always been my main passion. Ever since I got involved in governance a few years back, I’ve always been passionate about doing my best to represent the voices and opinions of the athletes of this sport. It’s really important athletes representatives know they have a voice because they can make a difference. I have attended a 3 USA swimming conventions (ABM), the zone workshop in April and countless Eastern Zone, NJ, and other committee meetings and I have found there is always things to be learned even after a few years involved. After witnessing the great work of my fellow LSC representatives, Zone Representatives, and the Athlete’s Executive Committee members to make the sport better for the athletes and the emphasis on the importance of the athlete voice, it has inspired me to run for the Athlete Zone Director in order to continue to have a positive impact on each and every swimmer in the Eastern Zone. I look forward to the possibility of continuing my time in governance and happy to have had the opportunities I have had so far!
