At Saint Joseph’s, he has an internship as a financial analyst within the Athletic Department. He works directly under the direction of Athletic Director Jill Bodensteiner.

Character

Kahlenbeck is the President of Saint Joseph’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee, a member of the SJU Athletics Steering Committee and SJU Athletics Leadership Academy, a facilitator on SJU’s DEI Peer Panel, and a Presidential Scholarship Recipient.

“Kahlenbeck is a natural leader. He is confident, efficient, and will always make decisions with high integrity and for the well-being of whatever organization he is involved with. He is extremely intelligent and successful in the classroom, maintaining a 4.0 GPA, and also finds the time to be a stellar student-athlete and volunteer for several leadership groups and committees at St Joe’s. Kahlenbeck also mentors many of the younger members of the men’s soccer team by offering guidance and advice for school and in soccer. He was voted to be a team captain by his teammates and coaches this past year. The thing that is most impressive is that he makes a positive impact with all of those around him; he will identify what is needed to succeed and will collaborate with the group to create a teamwork environment to achieve the objective.”
