Has done volunteer community service with Habitat for Humanity, Our Daily Bread soup kitchen and with Mt. Hebron church group... Says her biggest sports thrill is having "tunnel vision at the end, near the finish"... Chose Maryland over Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Lehigh and for the engineering program...

If she could change anything about her sport, it would be to eliminate soreness after runs.
