What excites you and why did you choose Polk State? 

“I am excited to be part of Polk State's soccer team because I get another chance to play soccer at a school where I really feel comfortable. All the girls in the team are great, and I know we will have a great year together with Steve Linamen as our coach. Polk has a great nursing program, which is my major of interest. They also have a great staff that has worked with me and helped get everything I need done.”
