Q: Have you found it difficult to balance school work and lacrosse?
A: No not really because I like to keep myself busy. I usually just try to do the work the day I get it and to not put it off because then you just get more stressed out.

Q: What do you do about school work when you are on the road?
A: In past years I just try to do as much work as I can but sometimes it's really hard to get stuff done. I try to talk to my teachers in advance about tests but if I miss it then they usually let me make it up later.

Q: What do you miss most from home when you are here at school?
A: I miss the people from home, old friends, and the people I baby-sit for. But I like it here, so I don't miss too much.

Q: What is your most memorable moment in lacrosse?
A: Beating Richmond in the A-10 tournament because we were down but six goals or something and we came back and beat them.

Q: What made you become a lacrosse player?
A: I just love sports and we didn't have softball spring and I wanted to do something so I started playing lacrosse.

Q: What do you do in the off-season to stay in shape?
A: I just try to keep my body moving. We have a workout that we have to do but sometimes it's hard to follow it. Like in the winter it will be snowing out and we are supposed to do a track workout or something like that.

Q: Is there anyone that you look up to and why?
A: All the juniors that were on the lacrosse team when I was a freshman, because there were no seniors so the juniors were put into leadership roles. They took it with stride, they weren't mean and they helped guide the rest of us because we were freshmen and we didn't know what to do.

Q: Do you have any pre-game rituals or preparation?
A: I always go to the training room every single day. That is like my home away from home. I usually wear the same sports bra or socks. I always have a routine with my trainer and she always tapes me in the middle of warm-ups.

Q: Is there a team that you look forward to playing the most?
A: I would have to say Richmond.

Q: Did you play any other sports as a kid?
A: I played soccer and basketball in high school as well.
