What was it that drew you to the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program?
What drew me to the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program is the
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 knowledgable and passionate coaches of
the game. At Dartmouth, I knew that I could reach my full potential.
Where is your favorite place to eat on campus?
Collis because it has the best breakfast options (my
favorite meal of the day)|
Do you have a pre-game ritual?
I always wear my lucky headband and put green tape on
teammate Kara Lehman's arm.
What is your major & why?
I am an economics major with a minor in international
relations. I love working with numbers and economics allows me to apply
mathematical concepts to real world context. I enjoy studying the international
sphere because much of what is going on abroad now has both direct and indirect
effects on the United States both immediately and in the future.
Have you ever met anyone famous?
My grandfather was an Olympic skier.
Three words to describe the coaches
Determined, confidant, committed
