Most memorable high school moment: My high school experience had many memorable moments but my favorite was winning the 2021 WIAA State Girls Golf Tournament.

Most influential teacher: Julie Eckhart in Accounting, Personal Finance & Falcon Financial Internship;  took Accounting with Mrs. Eckhart the first semester of my freshmen year.
