Why did you choose this college?
Besides the beautiful campus, Wofford offers the perfect balance of high academics and competitive D1 lacrosse.

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
Be very open to all schools that come your direction.

Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
John McClain, director of Florida Select Girls Lacrosse Club Program. Coach John did not only teach me everything I know lacrosse wise (from stick-skills to lacrosse IQ), but he guided me throughout the entire recruiting process, making sure where I end up is a good fit for me. I would also like to thank my parents for being supportive of every aspect of my lacrosse career.

What are your first memories of the sport?
When I came to my first lacrosse practice with a boys stick.

What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
My whole team sprinting to our goalie, celebrating and jumping on each other after winning the first girls lacrosse state championship for my school

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
I play with a Gait Stick. I love the light weight of the shaft as well as the softness of the stringing and the quick release of the ball.

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
I would love to have a meal with Sam Apuzzo. This is because I grew up watching her, being inspired by her skills and work ethic.

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
I love watching College and Pro games. I am able to learn from the older players, enhancing my lacrosse IQ when it comes to the little aspects of the game, such as dodging, draw controls, and defensive positioning.

What’s Your Go-To Meal After a Game?
Chipotle or an Açaí Bowl

What’s the One Thing Your Teammates Would be Surprised to Know About You?
My team would be surprised with how much I lift weights. I weight train almost everyday, but I always try to be mindful of the intensity of lacrosse at the time, making sure I do not over or under train.
