I fell in love with field hockey in first grade. My little Montessori school, Mater Amoris, focused on teaching field hockey to all of its students. Through field hockey, I learned to advocate for myself, the value of good sportsmanship, and hard work. I have used these valuable lessons in all areas of my life. I play for Freedom Hockey which has taught me to be a team player, to play to my strengths, work on my weaknesses and be ready for a challenge.
I started off playing defense but because of my speed and endurance, I also play midfield, bottom of the diamond, forward or center during the indoor season. My versatility is one of my greatest strengths. Playing multiple positions has taught me how to have great field vision and to cover my teammates as players change positions due to game time situations.
I have been very lucky to have worked with great coaches from both national and collegiate levels. One of my greatest strengths is my coachability. I thrive on feedback to build my game and improve.
Off the field, I spend time with family and friends, teach my dog, Buddy, tricks. I enjoy traveling, photography, crocheting, art and design, sailing and fishing, too. I am a strong student and understand the value of a good education but also giving back. I love being a part of the Best Buddies program and supporting events that benefit children's cancer patients.
In college, I am hoping to succeed academically, fight hard on the turf and meet new and different people.
Excited for the future,
