Class of 2001
MSU swimming in many ways, is Michigan State to me. The start of lifetime friendships and of following my passions. MSU Swimming provided a building block for transitioning the grit needed for sport beyond the pool and into academics and then later work.
I chose MSU: -To swim wearing green and white. -For the team camaraderie MSU swimming & diving demonstrated -For the opportunity to be a student athlete on team that promoted greatness in academics & sport
MSU Swimming taught me the values of team, perseverance, determination, hard work, trust & friendship. I have leaned on these experiences as I gained a doctoral degree, and later working in leadership roles in health centers/medical practices & now as an owner of a multidisciplinary health practice.
