ON WHY UNM: “The culture that Coach Congleton and her staff have built at UNM is exciting, and something I knew I wanted to be a part of from our first conversation. The emphasis on working hard and always putting the team first fit the type of environment I knew I’d be able to thrive in. I couldn’t be more excited to be a Lobo!”
