Recruit Profile
Coachable, eager-to-learn player. Try my best to excel in any activity I am involved in. Have fast reaction time and I am a multi-sport athlete (swim & lacrosse goalie)

I am a Junior at Kent Denver School and have a cumulative GPA of 3.86. I am currently taking AP Biology, AP US History, Chinese IV, Pre-Calculus, Physics & English. I have been on my schools Mock Trial team for several years. I have school published work in photography and a ceramic piece in KDS Art collection.

I started playing field hockey in 6th grade and started playing goalie in the middle of 7th grade. While I enjoy playing with my friends on my club team, I have also been very successful joining other teams as a guest player. In July 2019 I was a guest player for Club Lewy in the Rocky Mountain State Games and we won the Gold Medal. I first played with Fer de Lance as a guest player when we qualified at NITQ in 2019. Then, when I attended the Drijver Goalie Academy in Amsterdam in July of 2020, I was the only American and I was 1 of 2 girls. My team went into the finals. My team unfortunately lost in a shootout against a team that had multiple U16 & U19 national players from various countries, however, I still enjoy being able to play 1v1 against my opponents.

After being a guest player with Fer de Lance for NITQ, NIT & Disney, I had the opportunity to join their club team full time. It was difficult to leave Denver Field Hockey Club since I had been with them for so long but I jumped at the chance to join a competitive club who could provide more travel opportunities for me. I still train with DFHC and Club Lewy, both in CO.

I have excellent hand/eye coordination and fast reflexes. I have continuously been told by coaches that I am very coachable and able to quickly apply what I have been taught.

In addition to playing field hockey, I am on my schools varsity swim team and I am on the varsity lacrosse team where I play goalie.

I have been involved with National Charity League since 7th grade and I was also an intern at the American Heart Association. I have also coached younger girls in field hockey through Denver Field Hockey Club.
