Growing up in Texas, I was a tri-sport athlete, participating in as many team sports as I could. I fell in love with each sport I participated in but it wasn’t until 7th grade, when I discovered field hockey, that I had truly found my sport. My family moved to Wisconsin my freshman year and when my parents asked what I wanted in a school, I requested high academics, diversity and field hockey!
I have always loved being a student athlete, believing that being a student makes me a smarter athlete and being an athlete makes me a more timely and diligent student. Therefore, I am interested in an academic school where I can also play field hockey. I also love the fact that by playing field hockey, I automatically have a second family.
As a teammate, I am extremely calm under pressure and am always incredibly supportive of my teammates on and off the field. As a student of the sport, my coaches appreciate my highly coachable attitude and personality as well as my eagerness to work hard.
Off the field and beyond the classroom, I have many different passions and hobbies. However, traveling is my absolute favorite thing to do. This is because I love exploring new places and immersing myself into new cultures. I especially love integrating the use of Spanish into my travel because it allows me to connect with locals on a deeper level. I also love volunteering and animals and have found a way for these two things to go hand in hand. Through volunteering at shelters and training my dog to be a therapy dog, I am able to connect with my community on a personal level.
