"I enrolled at IAF in 2001 and graduated in 2007.
After graduating, I attended Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) and obtained a bachelor's degree in exercise science in 2013. During my final year at SVSU, I was hired to work at the International Academy of Saginaw - another SABIS® Network school - in the Student Management Department. In the summer of 2015, I accepted my current job as Community School Director for the Crim Fitness Foundation here in the city of Flint, Michigan. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in athletic administration from Ohio University and anticipate graduating in December 2018.
The most important thing I learned at IAF came as a result of the relationships I built with classmates, staff, support staff, and school leaders. In hindsight, they were such an amazing support group for me and helped push me to achieve goals that I didn't know were possible. Positive relationships made me want to be at school, and that is exactly what I promote in the role I currently serve."
