Hello, my name is Arica. Growing up I was an active child that participated in as many sports as my parents would allow. After my completion of high school I realized soccer was my true passion. I started my soccer career at Tacoma Community College where I also received my AA degree.
Continuing my education, I was accepted into the University of Washington but had many troubles on choosing a major. Still having the desire to play soccer at a competitive level, I transferred to Central Washington University where I completed a Bachelors degree in Recreational Management.
I went onto the next level of soccer when I became a part of the Seattle Women Sounders. I know what it takes to be at the top level and how to get there starting from the very bottom.
I decided to carry on my education by enrolling in Pierce Community College Personal Training Program to gain more assets in becoming a personal trainer. Through their program I was able to become an ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) certified personal trainer.

Q. What inspires you?
A. What inspires me is any person who has hit rock bottom and can find the will to climb out of their deepest hole. I love to hear any stores like that.
Q. If you could do one thing, top of the bucket list, what would it be?
