Stevenson University

Why did you choose this college?
I had an automatic connection with the team, and they are one of the strongest DIII colleges. The school campus in general is beautiful and they are making new renovations through the years. The school is beautiful, and everyone there connects like a family.

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
Be patient! It may seem like it is a long process, but in the end it is worth it. It takes time to talk to as many schools as you can, but you will eventually just know where you want to go.

Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
I would like to thank my parents for supporting and always being there to help with anything I needed help with. I would also like to thank my lacrosse girls, they all supported me through this, and I wouldn’t be here without them.

What are your first memories of the sport?
I would say my earliest memory of lacrosse was when I was terrified of the ball! I couldn’t even catch a ball without freaking out.

What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
My favorite memory was making it to final four. As a team we all worked together to get where we needed to be, and we did it. Also our team trips and traveling on the bus, we may have gotten tired of each other, but the memories that we make along the way is so worth it.

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
I use a GAIT! The stick is amazing to keep the ball within your net, and amazing for long throws during transitions, also good for interceptions!

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
Dempsey Arsenault. I have always looked up to her as a player the first time I saw her playing. I inspired to be just like her!

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
I am always invested in the women’s college lacrosse games, by the watching the games, it allows me to determine, and take notes of things that I should do to better my game!

What’s Your Go-To Meal After a Game?
Alfredo pasta! Good good, and allows my system to get the carbs in.

What’s the One Thing Your Teammates Would be Surprised to Know About You?
I have five concussions, and I’ve had hip surgery!
