Why did you chose this college?

I was looking for an elite field hockey program with superior academics. I found Northwestern to be the perfect formula.

I have always loved Big Ten sports because of its great fans, great competition, great schools and great comradery.

Best Field Hockey Memory:

My best FH memory from high school would be winning the state championship my sophomore year and being able to play with some incredible field hockey players who taught me valuable lessons on and off the field.

 

The best thing about being a Mayhem athlete:

The best part of Mayhem is the relationships I have made with my teammates and coaches that have helped shape into the player and person I am today.

 

One thing you will miss about Mayhem:

I will miss my teammates and coaches the most!

 

What are your field hockey goals?

My field hockey goal is to be the best player and teammate I can be and to always challenge myself physically, mentally, athletically and academically.

 

Who would you like to thank and why?

I would like to thank my mom, dad and family for all of their sacrifice, their support, and their help in shaping the person I am today. I would also like to thank all of my coaches for their help in challenging me to be a better player and person!
