During high school, Sydney was a multi-talented athlete as she participated in volleyball, competitive Olympic & high school weight lifting, and pole vaulting for track and field. As of today, Sydney assists with the Leesburg girls’ weightlifting program.
Sydney is very passionate about alternative communication, whether it is low-tech communication books or AAC devices. She plans to further her education in Sign Language and therapy for patients diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorders. Sydney was a part of a group of student-clinicians who traveled on a cruise ship for a week with patients who had Aphasia. She said that it taught her how powerful communication can be and enforced that she should encourage every patient to conquer anything they set their mind to.
Outside of work, Sydney loves weightlifting and fishing. She also enjoys spending time with her two dogs, Jedi and Scarlett.
