What drew you to the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program?
There were so many aspects of the Dartmouth Lacrosse Program that drew me. First of all, I LOVED the team and the support they showed each other. When I was here for camps/clinics, it was so amazing to see the pride and passion that everyone shared for the team, the sport, and the program. Furthermore, I wanted to take advantage of an incredible opportunity to be coached by some of the best coaches in the country. I learned so much at camp and improved my game immensely just by being coached by Dartmouth players and coaches. Academically, I loved the challenge of an Ivy League education and the alumni connections that it fosters after college. I was intrigued by the D plan in our ability to study abroad and the emphasis placed on this experience. Socially, I knew it would be a great fit because everyone on the team was so welcoming to me.
Who is the most talented member on the team away from the field?
I look up to Liz Calby the most of anyone on the team. Her passion, dedication, and hard work are admirable. I think it is incredible how well she does academically, and how much time she still dedicates to lacrosse. I also love how positive and encouraging she is. I think she is the most talented because of how many things she devotes her time to.
As a little kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a teacher. I am still considering a career in education.
What is your favorite place on campus?
My favorite place on campus is the Green because it is so beautiful. I love how I can fully relax on the green and forget about all of my stress. It is a great place to think and reflect.
What is the feeling you get when putting on a Dartmouth uniform?
Pride. I feel so much pride when I wear Dartmouth lacrosse clothes. It makes me feel so appreciative of what I have here and how lucky I am to be a part of such a wonderful program.
