Recruit Profile
Nexus Championship 2022 (U19 Alternate). Two time S.D. Eastern All-League First Team. Vocal, aggressive, competitive. Strong field position awareness. Team leader. Coachable and disciplined. Focused on fitness and technical skills.

As a rising freshman in 2019, I was asked to try out for my high school field hockey team as a goalkeeper. Confident in my athletic abilities, aggressive and unafraid, and always up for a new challenge, I went for it, earning the spot as varsity goalkeeper. My coaches immediately recognized my raw, natural talent for the position, and I quickly become a strong and dominant goalie. Twice, for the COVID-delayed Spring 2021 season and the Fall 2021 season, I was selected for the San Diego Eastern All-League First Team. I am always working hard on my skills and have strong game awareness. I know I have the talent to play collegiate field hockey at a D1 level.

Academically, I am a 4.0+ student taking honors and AP classes. I am in the four-year biomedical pathway at University City High School, but also have a creative side that I express through drawing. I am exploring college degrees in exercise science, sports management and/or art and design. I have volunteered as a student counselor for a summer kids sports camp and I also mentor the new, youngest goalies in my field hockey club when my personal training schedule allows.

In my free time, I love to surf, draw, read books, teach myself French and guitar, play with my dog and travel with my family to explore new places in the US and abroad.
