Q: When did you first start playing lacrosse and what got you into it?

A: I first started playing in middle school. My mother wanted me to play a sport where I would run around a lot, but, to her disappointment, I ended up playing goalie where you don’t actually move that much.


Q: What is your favorite part about playing for the Union team?

A: I love getting to represent my school in such a positive manner. On top of that I’ve gotten to meet a lot of different great people and personalities through the team and have developed as a person as well.


Q: What has been your favorite memory playing for the Union team?

A: For our last fall practice this year, we had an intrasquad scrimmage where everyone dressed up and we had team names. My team’s name was the Wild Things and we all dressed up in animal costumes. I think we lost every single game we played but we had a lot of fun.


Q: What is something unique about the women’s lacrosse team at Union?

A: There are a lot of huge personalities on the team. We’re very loud and we love to have fun. It makes for an interesting experience.


Q: What is something you hope to accomplish this season?

A: I think we have a very talented team this year, so I feel that we have the potential to do really well. A couple seasons ago we were Liberty League champions and I think we’d like to repeat that this year.


Q: Other than being a student-athlete, what is your favorite part about attending Union?

A: The community at this school. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help each other out. It’s nice to be around.


Q: What is your favorite thing to eat on-campus?

A: Ozone House’s eggplant parmesan at the Friday lunches. Those are the best.


Q: What is your favorite thing to do off-campus?

A: Once a week I try to drive to Whole Foods and treat myself to a nice dinner and pickup some groceries.
