I am super excited to run for the position of Southern Zone Athlete Director! The past 4 years being involved in governance in USA Swimming has been nothing short of amazing. The SZ Junior Rep. position gave me the opportunity to meet so many new people from all over the Southern Zone and the United States, and for that I am so blessed. This position has taught me so many new skills in terms of working with people to meet a common goal, leadership, problem solving, and much more. I believe that I am perfect for this position because I do a very good job with connecting and leading people. I am also able to stay actively engaged while current important legislation is being discussed that will undoubtedly impact all USA Swimming Athletes. Again, I believe that my years of experience have equipped me with the knowledge, experience, and abilities to take on a Zone Athlete Director position. I will strive to represent the Southern Zone in the best way possible and work hard to keep everyone’s opinions and thoughts in mind throughout my tenure.
