Attend Southern Connecticut State University and will play volleyball for them. I would like to major in biology and eventually go on to optometry school after I complete an undergraduate degree in biology. I aspire to later become an optometrist.
Favorite sports memory:
My favorite high school sports memory was during my sophomore year when our softball team won the state championship. It was a feeling that was unexplainable and something that not many athletes get to experience. I will never forget the experience I had down at state and I was so privileged to be a part of such a rare and awesome event.
Advice to an athlete:
Continually push yourself each and every day. Practices and games can get tiring and stressful, but in the end, it is worth it. The life skills that you learn are incredible to put to use throughout the rest of your life.
My coaches that pushed me to be the best I could every day. Specifically, Tom Drohner and Dave Hauser who were my basketball and softball coaches. They were very tough coaches that taught me how to become the mentally tough person I am today.
