Getting to know…

  • Other sports played in high school: Soccer and basketball
  • Favorite lacrosse player? Jen Adams
  • Favorite athlete from another sport? Ray Rice
  • Best advice received from a coach? “Go to the University of Florida” –Mike McLaughlin, Skywalkers coach
  • What are your strengths as a player? Consistency, heart and work ethic
  • What should every player at your position know, or need to be able to do on the field? As a midfielder, you need to have good game sense, quick reaction time, and great communication. You also need to be aggressive and hard working. The little things are sometimes the most important.
  • What’s the most important part of your preparation for a game? A big part of my game preparation is getting mentally ready. Visualizing myself scoring a goal, getting a ground ball, and winning is what I have to lock down in my mind prior to each game.
  • Game-day ritual? At Florida, I always have to do my teammate, Kitty Cullen’s hair. It sounds random, but it’s a tradition!
  • Best lacrosse moment? Either beating Northwestern for the first time my sophomore year at Florida or getting to the final four this year.
  • Special talent? I’m actually really good at tap dancing. I have also been to Brazil to play soccer for the Olympic Development Program when I was a sophomore in high school.
