Role Model: Growing up I had always idolized Mia Hamm. I even went to the ceremony when she was inducted to the soccer hall of fame. She was the face of women’s soccer when I was growing up and I had always wanted to be like her.

Pre-Game Ritual: Before games we always like to listen to music in the locker room. Then about 5 minutes before we leave the locker room for the field, we all get together and listen to an inspirational speech to help us get focused and game ready.

Thing I Enjoy the Most About Soccer: Playing alongside my teammates. We are all one big family and it’s a really fun experience. I’m blessed to be a part of this team.

Why I Started Playing Soccer: Both my parents are athletes and they enrolled me in basketball, soccer and softball. I happened to like soccer the most and just stuck with it.

Personal Goals: Just playing every single game with heart and passion and to play for the girl standing next to me. I want to do my job on the field well.

Fun Fact: I am terrified of moths.
