I live in Hainesport, NJ with my family; Dad, Mom, Big brother Mike and our dog Simon. We moved there from Mt Holly, NJ in 2010. Moving to a new town and meeting new people was a tough thing to do for me as an 8-year-old. Leaving my friends and starting at a new school was scary for me, that was the first time I had to deal with adversary but not the last. I was able to overcome this with my outgoing attitude, this comes from always going to my older brothers sporting events and meeting tons of people; that has made me a very outgoing and approachable person. I’m now your typical high schooler at Rancocas Valley Regional High School in Mt Holly, NJ. I work hard at keeping my grades up and balance my life with school, softball and friends. I want to reach for the sky through High School and College, my dream is to work in the Communications field. So I have college prep studies in high school and plan on a major of Communications in college. I love going to school sporting events to support my school and friends who are playing. I am a very loyal and artistic person. I stick by my friends through everything, good or bad. I also like drawing, painting, refinishing furniture and photography.
Tagging along to my brother’s sporting events really gave me the want to play sports. I started with gymnastics and cheerleading, then I started playing softball and soccer. I really took to the team sports and they helped me develop my teamwork mindset; I love working with other people to make things go.
Watching my brother play baseball I wanted to try. Even though I was only 4 years old my parents signed me up to play tee ball which was my first taste of the sport that I love! I moved to recreational and travel softball teams beginning at the age of 6, then took the leap into club ball at the age of 12. I feel that this took my skills and love of the game to the next level! I have really learned a lot about myself playing softball, I can overcome adversary, take constructive criticism, make friends, be a leader, work as part of something bigger than me and most of all be a good sport.
