Recruit Profile
Coachable, strong Lax IQ, fast, multi-sport, USA Lacrosse National Women's Tourney (2021 & 2019), IAAM All Conference, MVP, 3X National Lax athlete, Maverik NLC All-star team (2019)

I am a multi-sport student-athlete at Pallotti High School in Laurel, MD and will graduate in May 2022. I am a dedicated team player who is fully committed on the field, in the classroom and in the community. Coaches, players and spectators describe my on-field presence as gritty, competitive, determined, focused and fun to watch. I am currently an attack on Uproar 2022 Elite and Pallotti High School Varsity team. I was inducted into the National Honor Society my junior year and received a Certificate of Service Award from Luv Michael foundation. I was recognized for PNC Achiever Award for my leadership and commitment in the classroom, community and on the lacrosse field.

I have been playing and competing in lacrosse for over 7 years. I am coachable, fast and have great lacrosse IQ, power shots and quick release. Recently, I was honored by being selected for IAAM All-Conference, making captain my junior year, receiving Most Valuable Player award, Offensive Player of the Year award and Varsity Letter from Pallotti High School. I helped my team advance to 2021 IAAM C Conference semi-finals game. I qualified and was selected for the 2021 USA Women's Lacrosse National Tournament for the Maryland Metro Team 1. In 2019, I qualified for the Maverik National Lacrosse Classic (NLC) Tournament and was selected to the Maverik NLC 2022 All-Star game. I am a three-time US National Lacrosse Classic qualifier and participant (2016, 2017 and 2019). In 2016, I helped the Maryland 2022/2021 team win the Brine national championship for our age group. I really enjoyed the level of competition at these tournaments because they gave me great opportunity to meet, play with and learn from many experienced and talented athletes from across the country.

For 2018 and 2019, I volunteered as a youth coach at Pallotti Girls Lacrosse camps. This was an exciting opportunity for me because I had the pleasure of helping teach and grow the game for rising first through ninth graders.

After graduation from high school, I want to pursue a business degree at a college/university with great reputation in academics and support for athletes and community.
