I began playing ice hockey at the age of seven. For most of my career, I have played on boys' teams; however, upon entering high school, I made the transition to playing girls' hockey. Being able to have the opportunity to play college hockey at an incredible academic school has been my biggest aspiration since I have begun playing the sport.
On the ice, despite playing as a forward, I am a fairly defensive-minded player with my strengths including the penalty kill, forechecking, and backchecking. My "team first" attitude is something that has driven my work ethic and desire to improve and contribute. Every time I have the opportunity to step on the ice or train in the weight room, I am always the hardest working athlete. Furthermore, I am very coachable and very responsive to feedback.
While I am very passionate about athletics, academics are my priority and I aspire to be the best student I can be. My work ethic is as strong in the classroom as it is on the ice. Since my time at Lawrenceville, I have achieved either Dean's List or High Honors each term.
Whether in the classroom or on the ice, my upward trajectory, work ethic, and responsiveness are some of my most important characteristics. Playing women's ice hockey at the college level at an outstanding academic university would provide me the opportunity to grow as a student, as an athlete, and as a person.
