Why did you choose Brown? “Growing up, I aspired to attend an Ivy League school. I believe Brown offers a plethora to student-athletes, academically and athletically. The fact that Brown is one of the “happiest schools” in the nation, and that students are able to create their own schedules according to their preferences is quite captivating. Coaches Keely McDonald, Meg Miller, and Sarah Holden are so approachable and willing to motivate student-athletes not only on the field, but in the classroom as well, to the best of their ability.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for their guidance and providing me with transportation to countless practices and games, and to my younger brother for always being there next to me. Coach Rose, Coach Thorn, and Coach Ceraso have all been significant individuals throughout these past few years by teaching me necessary fundamentals of the game, and helping me throughout the recruiting process. I would also like to thank my High School coach, Coach Kilkenny for always believing in me.”
