NorCal Auburn Club Leaders
As a UAB student in the late ’90s, there wasn’t much to root for on the gridiron. My first Auburn game was Auburn vs LSU in 2000, and I immediately fell in love with The Auburn Family atmosphere. I started watching games with the NorCal AU Club when I moved to the Bay Area in 2009, and have been an active part of the NorCal Family since then.

I love giving back to a community that gave me so much! I remember being terrified Freshman year as an out-of-stater. Little did I know that my Auburn family would be with me for the rest of my life, even in Northern California! I am specifically passionate about expanding our club meetups beyond sport-related events. I love our community clean-up events and our summer career seminars!

Moving from another country is always a little stressful. Luckily, in Auburn, I found some of the most welcoming and friendly folks I had the pleasure of crossing paths. I went to Auburn to be a Student-Athlete, and my experience was unforgettable. I moved to the Bay Area to pursue my second Master’s Degree in 2018, and I recently joined the NorCal Auburn Club to help wherever I can.

I was unsure where I wanted to go to college, but was lucky enough to visit my sister a couple times at Auburn while I was in high school. The culture and community stood out against any other school I had visited. A couple years later, I enrolled at Auburn and had the best four years. I didn’t know many coming from Texas, but it was such a welcoming place that I felt right at home. I moved to SF in 2018 and have been lucky to travel back every year for a football game. I joined the Auburn Club in 2021 so that I could watch games with our incredible alumni and it’s been a great time!
