PERSONAL: Born in Santa Maria, Calif. ... Daughter of Larry and Candy Welch … Sister to Savana … Majoring in art at Pepperdine … Chose to come to Pepperdine because “Pepperdine has been my dream school since I was a young girl. I’ve always felt God calling me here and I feel that Pepperdine is a place where my faith will continue to grow. The coaches were a huge factor in my choosing Pepperdine and I immediately felt a connection with them. I have so much respect for them and am grateful they are people who will help me to become a better soccer player on the field, but even more importantly, will help to develop my character and walk with God, off the field. Pepperdine has an excellent academic reputation and I feel privileged to work toward my degree in such an amazing environment. Also, I love that the beach is only a short walk away and the people at Pepperdine are amazing.”
