 PERSONAL HIGHLIGHTS

What stick do you use and why do you choose it?
I use a Ritual Velocity 95. It has a light-weight feel while dribbling yet still allows for powerful hits.

Do you have a grip preference? If so, which grip and why do you like it?
I use a Gryphon chamois! It is great for playing in the rain when the grip gets wet, as it prevents my grip from getting too slick.

How long have you been playing field hockey and what made you first want to start playing?
I started playing field hockey in first grade, so it’s been 12 years now! I played a lot of different sports growing up and my mom played field hockey in high school, so I decided to give it a try. As I grew older, I chose to continue with field hockey for the pace and team aspect of the game.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Triple-knotting my shoelaces

What’s your go-to pre-game meal?
Fruit! I usually have an apple before every game.

What is your go-to game day hairstyle?
A regular ponytail :)

Favorite pump-up song(s) to listen to before a game?
Where You Are by John Summit

Describe your playing style in three words?
Aggressive, high-energy, team-oriented

What do you like to do when you’re not playing field hockey?
Walking my dog and watching baseball

Do you have any game day superstitions?
I’m superstitious about how I do my hair! I have to win a couple of games with the same hairstyle or else I’ll switch it up again.

What’s your favorite motivational quote?
10% of life is what happens to you, 90% is how you respond - Charles Swindoll

If you could give your younger self a piece of advice, what would it be?
Control what you can; your focus, energy, and effort.

What is your favorite field hockey memory?
Scoring my 100th career high school goal this past fall!
