MK began playing ultimate her freshman year at the University of Notre Dame. She joined for the quirky people and stayed for the sport. Notre Dame’s unique ultimate program showed her just how supportive the ultimate community is and that she’ll never take a serious picture ever again. She has since played club in Atlanta, pick-up in DC and Chicago and of course the rigorous Fall/Spring leagues of South Bend, Indiana. Now she is a wedding planner in Chicago, Illinois.
More importantly, MK has been involved in various ME peace programs since she was 8 years old. Her hometown of Glenview, Illinois is home to the grassroots peace program Hands of Peace. She went through their two-year dialogue program, worked for them for 3 years and lived in Tel Aviv for a year on her own. Ultimate Peace is the perfect combination of her passion for peace in the Middle East and her love of Ultimate Frisbee. She can not wait to volunteer her time this summer and eat authentic falafel!
