What will you major in? Business

Why did you choose school?
“The academics, as well as the lacrosse program, are phenomenal. Coach (Brooke) Ireland, Coach (Sarah) Mollison, and all of the players on the team made me feel at home as soon as I walked on campus. The campus is beautiful and Williamsburg, VA, is a great location. William and Mary has so much school pride and it is a perfect fit for me.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for the season?
“With Jenny Duckenfield as our new coach, we have clear goals that we plan on achieving. We possess a lot of talent and I can confidently say that she already has and will continue to strengthen our team into a threatening force.”

Other Comments: “I would like to thank my parents and sister, who have supported me from the start, along with Coach Lori Ehret who first put a goalie stick in my hand freshman year. I would like to thank the STEPS organization, Brooke Fritz and Liz Harris; also, Coach Phyllis Kilgour and Coach Kim Jackson for all of their help along the way in the college process and for their wonderful coaching. Finally, I want to thank Coach Jenny Duck; without her belief in me, her knowledge of the game, and her rigorous training, I would not have been able to accomplish all that I have so far.”
