Jack Baldoni

I have always been interested in working hard and training for sports, which led me to my choice of a Sports and Exercise major, I plan to pursue a job as a Strength and Conditioning Coach.

 I was born in British Columbia, Canada but recently moved to the Pacific Northwest. Sports have always been a big part of my life. I have played soccer since I was four and have also done many other sports and currently I am part of the women's soccer club team at SU. I recently did an internship with a Physical Therapy, Chiropractic and Athletic training facility and really fell in love with those professions. I want to share my love of fitness and promote a healthy lifestyle through my career and I feel that becoming a Physical Therapist is the right fit for that.

Being a Washington native, I was raised in the city of Lynnwood, WA, just north of Seattle. Growing up, sports have been a big part of my life. I played various kinds of sports, such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming, tennis, and track and field. As time went on, I attended high school at Holy Names Academy in Seattle, where I continued my athletic career in basketball and tennis. At this point in time, I have loved every aspect of playing a sport because it keeps me active and I enjoy the idea of being part of a team. Unfortunately, near the end of my high school career, I lost the passion of playing sports, but still love the idea of being a part of it. Because of this, I decided to major into the Sports and Exercise Science program at Seattle University with my goal of becoming a physical therapist and/or personal trainer. Although I might not be physically playing a sport, I will be part of a team and contribute my abilities to make that team better.
