After speaking with people that work at the company is has given me confidence and desire to want to help people gain the same experience I had over in the states.

My experience in the US was such a great one. It made me in to a better player from training everyday and also I gained my degree in sport management with a minor in human resource management leading me to know that I will have that degree for when my football is no longer and option. Advice I would give to people is to not miss out on an opportunity like this because otherwise you will regret it.
How do you think your experience as a College Soccer Athlete will help you in your new role as a SRUSA Scout?
My experience of being a college soccer athlete allows me to understands the process and the steps in what it means to find players that will cherish this experience. It will allow me to guide potential players on the right path and give them help in any questions or queries they may have for the process. I will be able to relate to them on a personal level which helps a lot for this process.
What are your expectations upon joining the SRUSA team?
My expectations for joining the SRUSA team are that I know I will be working with a good group of people that care about what they are doing. So I expect to enjoy the work and know that there will be people there to help me with anything I need. I have high expectations of the company and know what great work they have already done.
