How was your first semester at Maryland?

Great! I love the atmosphere and have felt very welcomed by my teammates, coaches and staff.

What attracted you to the University of Maryland?

The prestigious academics were my biggest attraction to UMD. I also was very attracted to the pride that comes with being a Terp and the very competitive, knowledgeable coaching staff.

What is your favorite memory from playing softball?

My favorite memory is growing up with my Dad as my Coach. We formed a very close bond from spending so much time together through our mutual love of the game.

How has it been getting to know your teammates?

Super easy. They are all so welcoming and caring. They are always there when I need help or have a question.

Are you a good cook, what's your favorite thing to make?

I don’t cook very often, but I do make some mean scrambled eggs!

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

My optimistic outlook on life.

What is the best vacation you have ever been on?

My family goes up to Maine and Cape Cod every summer so I’d say those have been my best vacation memories. One time, the transmission of our car broke down so we had to spend a couple of days in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be?

Be outside, relaxing and enjoying nature.
