Recruit Profile
Fluid dual handed stick skills with a combination of smarts and a passion for the game. Extremely effective to goal and also makes others successful (picks, feeds, field general). Aggressive in all aspects ESPECIALLY ground balls. Plays with heart. Great footwork and quickness. Passionate on the field, sidelines, and in the training room. Coachable and fun-loving. Always looking for opportunities to raise her game.

I have been playing lacrosse since I was 9 and have developed a true love for the sport. I was the only freshman on my high school team (Manheim Township HS) and started at attack during the team's second appearance in a row in the PA PIAA State Class 3A Championship game. In addition to school lacrosse I have played for 2022 Red Xtreme Lacrosse (Ranked #12 in US at start (week3) of 2019 by usclublacrosse.com) for the past 6 years. I take pride in being a consistent offensive threat at attack/midfield but also work hard in helping others be successful on the field. I dedicate a lot of my time away from regular practices learning the game and "putting in the time" which has allowed me to develop my left hand stick skills that are as solid as my right hand in dodging, shooting and passing. On the field I am always giving 100% and recognize that hustle and grit are as important as fundamental skills. I pride myself on ground balls and oftentimes start on the draw circle even when I am on attack to help with possession.

I look for instruction and refinement not only from our Club director but through other D1 player/coaches as well as participating in various elite camps, clinics and showcases. Playing with the best players in the game is a fantastic way to learn and improve. I try to find every opportunity to play and compete with great players at highly competitive 7v7 and 5v5 events, elite camps (UNC, Penn State, Penn etc.), training clinics (NXT National Learning Academy, NXT Hype Night), and elite showcases like the Under Armour All American Games (Philly Command Team 2018 & 2019), Under Armour 150, National Lacrosse Classic and Cascade Elite 80.

I also consider myself as competitive in the classroom as I am on the playing and practice field. I take pride in my 4.1 grade point average and look forward to challenging myself this year with all honors classes including Trigonometry, Biology, Language Arts, French 3 and AP World History. In addition to my courses I also participate in Blue Streak Connection which allows me to work with kids with disabilities at school and Mini-Thon which raises money for childhood cancer.

Outside of school I enjoy playing competitive tennis and recreational skiing.
