What drew you to the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program? After visiting campus, I felt a strong connection to the other players on the team and really enjoyed the sense of pride and tradition that existed on the team. Also, I fell in love with Dartmouth and Hanover and couldn’t imagine going to school anywhere else.
Do you have a hidden talent? I don’t really however I am really good at coloring.
As a little kid what did you want to be when you grew up? I always wanted to be a ballerina and wear a big pink tutu, alas this didn’t work out when I started to grow taller than 5’.
Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met in person? I have met Ben Folds and Sara Bareilles, I can’t say that I am responsible for meeting them but it was an amazing experience and I am now obsessed with all of their songs.
What do you love most about playing on our home field Scully-Fahey? I love playing on Scully because all of my friends who I can find cheering in the stands, a real sense of community.
Best memory from the Australia Tour. I was fortunate enough to spend my 21st birthday in Australia with the team; we spent that day on the Great Barrier Reef. I couldn’t image a better way to spend a birthday, with your best friends in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
