Special thanks: I’d like to say a special thanks to my fiancé, Veronica Wallace-Ewing, for her love and support throughout my time at UMO balancing my full time job in the military while in pursuit of my degree. Also, a very special thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way to achieve this dream of becoming an educator in physical education as well as coaching.

Favorite UMaine memory: There are a lot of memories that I will cherish forever from UMaine. I’d say the memories that stick out the most are all the friendships that I have made with the people I’ve come in contact with over my time at the University of Maine.
