Driving force for your decision to come to Wilkes?

I really liked the small campus and variety of majors since I wasn’t 100% sure of my major going into college.

Post graduation plans in terms of a career?

I’d like to work in the accounting department for a medium sized company then maybe run my own business.

Favorite building on campus?


What came first? The chicken or the egg?

The egg.

Hopes for this season as a Colonel?

Hopefully we can use this season to rebuild, earn some wins and work towards an even stronger team for next year.

When/Why did you first begin playing?

I started when I was in my early teens because a friend taught me how to play.

Most influential person in your life?

It’s a tie between my mom and dad. My mom always knows the right thing to say, and my dad reminds to give it my best no matter what I’m doing.

Favorite thing to do during practice?

Power and finesse.

Coke or Pepsi?


A quote you live your life by?

“Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.”

If you had to choose one thing about your program that you could improve, what would it be?

I would improve the fundraising so we could raise more money for not only our own trips but for different causes and programs.

Other interests or hobbies off of the field?

Working with horses and snowboarding.

What does “Be Colonel” mean to you?

It means that we’re all a team and need to work hard to represent Wilkes.

Anyone to give a shout-out to?

My family for always supporting me in everything I do and going out of your way to be there for me, and my teammates. Thank you for always picking me back up and helping me reach 100 points, I couldn’t have done it without you guys.
