Recruit Profile
I am a very determined, passionate, and dedicated player both on and off the field. I am constantly looking for feedback to improve my game.

I started playing field hockey at age 7. In fifth grade, I joined my first club team. My freshman year of Highschool, I made my school's Varsity roster, and became a starter my sophomore year. I work very hard outside of practice to improve my speed, stick work, and agility to become the best player possible. My current mile time is a 6:50 (Spring 2022). I also picked up being a referee for my local recreational hockey program on the weekends in the fall. Aside from field hockey, I am a very hard worker in the classroom. I maintain an unweighted 4.0 GPA, and take all honors and AP classes. I am also on High Honor Roll. Additionally, I am class president for the second year in a row, a member of French Club, Red Cross Club, and The Acceptance Project. I am also on a Greenpower USA Racing Team. Over the summer, I volunteer at a camp in my local park called Camp Soar. In middle school, I received the Principals Award and Rising Star Award from the staff. Being involved in my community and working hard are my favorite things!
