Shulze was a promising talent for Wisconsin and was recently posting the best marks of her career, earning three collegiate personal bests in three different events this past indoor track season. Shulze occasionally made appearances in Wisconsin's varsity cross country lineup.

A 2019 graduate of Oak Park High School in California, Shulze was also a member of the Student Athlete Council at Wisconsin.
