I have the ability to connect and work well with a team. Over the past four years, I helped found and operate a USA Swimming youth sports club, including administrative duties as vice president, logo and branding design, sports photography, website and social media presence, and parent liaison. Over the past year, since transferring to a different club, I became the team president and helped guide the team through uncertain times, as well as maintaining all of the same duties I had at the previous club.
