What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose JMU? “It is the perfect fit for me both academically and athletically. I loved the atmosphere, the campus, and all the coaches. I can’t wait to be a Duke Dog!”

Additional comments: “I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting me throughout this whole process.

I would like to thank my previous high school coaches Kate Henwood, Amanda Kammes, and ChristyAnn Morello for coaching me my freshman and sophomore year and helping me develop and get through this process. Lastly, I would like to thank Jenny Duckenfield for helping me with this process and helping me improve over the summer.
