Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right

Spending time with friends and family

University of Arizona

I was immediately drawn to the atmosphere created by the players and coaches. The school represents an amazing tradition I knew I wanted to be apart of.

I look up to Taryne Mowatt McKinney and model my play after her because I was inspired by her fearlessness she showed in the circle her whole career. I am so lucky I get to spend 4 years learning from her.

Both of my parents are Physical Therapists. My older sister played basketball and is now a student at the University of Washington and my younger brother is a baseball player.

I hope to be an example to play the game having fun and always working your hardest towards your dreams.

In 2021 I was named the California Gatorade Player of the Year. My high school team and I had a great run to the CIF Finals. I was a catcher until I was 11 and then started pitching.
