Year Participated at Austin Foundation: Summer 2010

Year of Graduation from Duke: May 2013

Majors and Certificates: Major in Biomedical Engineering

Where are they now (previous and current endeavors): Research Scientist at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance

Fitness Philosophy: "You'll never necessarily be the fastest or strongest, but you can always get better. The desire to do this must come from within."

Experience with the Austin Foundation: The Austin Foundation, embodied by the tireless efforts of the staff, is much more than a gym, and it is very obvious that once you step into the Foundation, that you gain much more than a stronger body. I gained a deeper understanding of relationships and an appreciation for the power they hold. I developed genuine relationships within the Foundation that changed my life, and I hope through the relationships I built with the kids, that I helped changed their lives too.
