"Success is never final, failure is never fatal." - John Wooden

When not playing softball, I enjoy playing other recreational sports, shopping, baking, traveling, and hanging out with my friends and family.

Iowa State University

Since the beginning of my softball career, it was my goal to play at a big Division I school. When I attended the Iowa State camp, it wasn’t only a big school, but they had a coaching staff that I loved and a positive team atmosphere. They had the perfect program for my major, and a smaller college town felt like home. Immediately following the camp, I knew it was the right fit for me.

I don’t think there is a specific athlete that I try to model my game after. Rather, I watch many athletes, decipher their strengths, and try to find ways to integrate those into my game.

When the time comes to hang up my cleats, I hope my character stands out to people more than my statistics. I want to be remembered as someone who is unselfish, a hard worker, but above all, a great teammate.
