"Being a collegiate athlete at LSU, as a member of the track and cross country teams, was an amazing experience and had a huge impact on the rest of my life. After finishing my last track season I went right into the work force as a (non-athletic) professional, but the skills and experiences I had gained throughout my athletic career left me well suited for the real world, even advantaged over those college graduates who were not collegiate athletes."

"Being a student athlete meant being able to successfully achieve a balance between my engineering course work, athletic training and competitions. And is that same balance and effort that allow me to be a software engineer, coach, runner, and mom today."

"Being an LSU student-athlete taught me how to manage time and recognize its importance. As a student-athlete, I had to balance school, athletics, and extracurriculars, I had to learn to how to organize my schedule and make the necessary sacrifices to enjoy myself, but also excel as both a student and athlete."
