What will you major in/study? Business Administration
Why did you choose Monmouth? “I chose Monmouth because it was the perfect fit for me. Monmouth offers a great business program at the Leon Hess Business School and I fell in love with the campus immediately. I was very impressed with the coaching staff, they’ve been extremely supportive throughout the recruiting process. When I met with the players I felt right at home.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “Our team’s plan for the season is to focus on the basics and getting better as a team. After we have a solid base, we will work hard to work hard on the field and take it one game at a time.”
Additional Comments: “I want to thank my parents for always supporting me. They’ve been there for me through all the busy weekend tournaments and throughout the recruiting process. They’ve taught me so much about life. I’m extremely lucky to have them for support.
“I’d also like to thank my coaches: Coach Mark Pinkerton, Coach Liz Hockley, Coach Jody Angelini, Coach Carl Wagner, Coach Katie Stewartz, and Coach Kirstin Schneider. I have learned so much from all of them and they have all played a part in making me the player and person I am today.”
