What drew you to the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program?
What drew me here is the overwhelming sense of pride, tradition, and cohesiveness of the team and the coaching staff. Not only is Dartmouth an Ivy League school and a top D1 program, but I am on a team with the most phenomenal women and am coached by some of the most knowledgeable and passionate coaches of the game. At Dartmouth, I knew that I could reach my full potential.

What is your favorite Dartmouth Lacrosse moment?
My favorite moment was in the Hanover Inn ballroom when generations of Dartmouth lacrosse players and coaches gathered and shared experiences and laughs. The similarities and connections that we all had were really unique and special.

As a little kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
According to my elementary school yearbook I wanted to be a “business woman”. I always had my eye on being an Olympian too.

Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met in person?
My grandfather was an Olympic skier

What is the feeling you get when putting on a Dartmouth uniform?
When putting on a Dartmouth uniform, I get the chills thinking about all the generations that have put this uniform on before me and how much hard work we have all put in to earn this jersey. I feel empowered and prepared to take on any competition.
