Ariel is a former Boise State softball player. After college, she has devoted her time into the growth and development of young athletes. She is currently a varsity coach for Timberline High School, as well as a head coach for the non-profit scholarship program, Idaho Crush, where she helps young women achieve their dreams of becoming a collegiate athlete. Ariel also works as a fitness coach at Element Athletix in Meridian, Idaho where she continues her passion to helps others grow and develop their mind and body. Her favorite part of her job is working with Project Movement, a non-profit dedicated to helping in the fight against Parkinson's Disease.
Along with her passion for athletics, Ariel has a big heart for the non-profit community. In 2018 she participated in AmeriCorps by working at CATCH, inc in downtown Boise. In her months there she assisted in the development of Our Path Home, which is a network of community advocates helping individuals and families experiencing a housing crisis. While her work with CATCH resulted in a nomination for a national community service award, she insists the experience alone was the most rewarding.
Despite her busy schedule, Ariel's favorite part of every day is coming home to her Corgi, Kevin.
