Favorite team memory: Bus rides to away games and our team trip to Italy. Going to Italy with my teammates and coaches we got to play against local teams, visit some amazing cities, and watch a live soccer game!

Proudest athletic achievement: Making it to the second round of NCAA playoffs at Kenyon.

Hope for future of your team: Make it to the second weekend of playoffs.

Something you'd like to say to your underclassmen teammates: Enjoy every moment, it goes by so quick.

Reason you chose Carnegie Mellon and how it's effected you: Academics and soccer program. I connected with the coaches and players I met on my visit. They stood as role models that I was able to learn from once I got to CMU and they all helped me by pushing me to become the person I am today.

An athletic opportunity you're thankful for: Being trusted so early on to prove the impact I could make on the field.

Team you enjoyed playing the most and why: Kenyon because of the importance of the game and the atmosphere.
