Fun facts:

  • Soccer Position(s) Played
    Youth/High School I only played Forward - College Outside/Attacking Mid - Adult Midfield/Forward. I also volunteered to be the back up keeper in high school and spent many weeks in goalie camps!
  • How or Who Got You Started Up in Soccer
    I was sleeping over at a friend's house and tagged along to her soccer practice. The coach asked if I wanted to play too. At the end of the practice, he asked if he could have my parent's phone number and if I'd like to come back. 
  • Favorite Before Game Meal/Snack
    A banana and lots of water
  • Favorite Aspect of Youth Soccer
    I loved having an outlet where being a female athlete was acceptable. That time was sacred to me as a kid, because it gave me a place to stand out and be around my peers.
