Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and/or athletics in general.
I enjoy interacting with people from different schools. I also enjoy setting individual and team goals and the awesome feeling of success when I/we meet or beat our goals.
What is your most memorable moment as an athlete?
Soccer: opening game of my senior year when we were playing Lourdes and Kortney (our goalie) was injured and I went in to play goalie for the remainder of the season when I had never played goalie before!
Basketball: making it to the semifinals my senior year and having the best record ever in K-M history!
Track: The support and encouragement to improve that we all give each other every single day!
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My parents and coaches... they all inspire me to work hard and to be the best I can be on and off the field/court/track.
What are your plans or goals after graduating from high school?
I will be attending Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI majoring in Nursing with the goal of becoming a trauma or flight nurse.
What advice do you have for younger athletes?
Work hard and never give it up. The only thing that matters at the end of the day is that you are happy with your effort and know that you gave it 110 percent
