Why did you choose Cornell University, Women’s D1? “I chose to play at Cornell because the program is very focused on team culture. This is very important to me because not only will I be with this team for four years, but for the rest of my life as well. I also like how diverse the education it is; especially because I don’t know exactly what I want to do.”

Coach Laurie Markle, thank you for showing me how much potential I have and providing me with the means to reach that potential. Thank you to Coach Mongo who helped me to substantially improve my skills through his dodging and shooting clinics with some of the best girls in our area. Coach Dave Page, thank you for being my goalie coach and helping me to improve all the skills needed in order to succeed in this position. And finally, thank you to my first ever goalie coach, Shelby Iezzi, for inspiring me to play and helping me to build my foundation from which to grow. “
