Following graduation, Ziccardi hopes to become a health and physical education teacher and earn her master's degree in educational leadership, eventually becoming a school administrator.

Ziccardi attributes her success as an undergrad to the School of Health, Physical Education and Sport Sciences faculty. "Each and every professor has a positive attitude and is willing to help you in any way that he or she can. It is like having a whole team rooting for you along the way. I firmly believe that because of their endless support and the relationships I have created, I am prepared for my future goals."
