Growing up playing in a hockey lacking state, it was always hard to compete at the level I wanted to. So since the beginning I played for our boys program. Mainly because I was wanting a more competitive competition, also because the only girls team option was U19. But I always pushed myself to be the best and beat who ever I was going against. Earning player of the year almost all of middle school I was determined to show what a girl could do on the boys team. Prior to my freshman year I attended the Colorado Multi-District camp. Then going into my freshman year I switched to playing girls for the first time ever, also joining our state team the Montana Wildcats. This past season I was apart of a rebuilding year for the Wildcats and our season was not of accomplishments through stats; but in show casing that Montana can compete. As of last year I was an assistant captain and first team/ line All-State for defense. This season I was named head captain as a junior and earned the same All-State accomplishments as the year before. My goals and aspirations going into college are not specifically for hockey but for Montana girls in general. As one of the more experienced players in Montana I want to set a path, for the young girls below me to be able to have the opportunity to progress in anyway they want with the sport. I am a hard worker and when obstacles are put in my way I give my full effort to get them moved for my benefit and anyone else I can. I believe, as a kid from Montana I am extremely underestimated and no one can expect what I am capable of doing.
