If you are reading this, first of all, THANK YOU! I appreciate you being here. I hope that by reading some of these thoughts and experiences, you are inspired and we can begin to learn together.
I am here to be vulnerable and open with the things I go through as a professional athlete and as a human being. I am here to make sure you know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I feel passionate and compelled to continue sharing my story with you. As a professional athlete, my softball career is always at the forefront. Leading up to college, it was all I worked for. In college, along with school, it was my top priority and filled up my days. Post college, I have made it my full time career. I have had much success within the game of softball, my greatest moment has been making the Olympic Team. I am so grateful for this and for the career I have had. I am more grateful for everything softball has taught me because it has led me to live a life I love and has shaped me into the person I want to be.
We all go through our own moments of greatness and defeat, some bigger or smaller than others, but these are what shape us. What we endure as athletes is so powerful and inspiring, but it can also be overwhelming and consuming. Even if you are not an athlete or not in the sports world, I know you can relate because at the end of the day we are all human and we all are living this life together.
I have so many stories and experiences I want to share with you. I truly believe it is so powerful that we are able to use our voice and connect with each other about the experiences we all might have. My experiences may be very different from yours, but I hope you continue to want to read and listen with an open mind as I open my heart to you.
