I was never “naturally smart” but I used my work ethic to get me far. Push past your comfort zone and get out there! Randolph’s diversity has contributed to the person I’ve become and has allowed me to comfortably engage with a wide range of people. Get involved with the community because you will make connections that will help you grow and build character. Aim high and fight for it.

3. Q: Where are you today? 

I currently work as a physical therapist at Bay State Physical Therapy in Kingston, MA. I really
enjoy working with the outpatient, orthopedic patient population and I hope to someday specialize in this area of practice.

4. Q: What advice would you give current student-athletes at RHS?

1. The key to your athletic and academic success lies in your work ethic. Passion and
motivation are also important, but each will only take you so far if you’re not willing to put
in the time and effort to prepare for your athletic events, examinations, and outside
activities.
2. Don’t spread yourself too thin – it’s important to find a healthy balance between your
academic and extracurricular activities so that you’re able to follow through with all of your
commitments.
3. Embrace the challenges you’re faced with and view each obstacle as a learning experience.
4. In addition to your training, make it a priority to get a good night’s sleep each night – this is
a crucial part of your body’s recovery process.
5. Be sure to enjoy your time as a Randolph High School student-athlete because your high
school years are a few of the best you’ll ever have!
