Driving force for your decision to come to Wilkes?

The distance was one of the major components when it came to me making my decision. Once I met the team and talked with some of the professors, it just felt like this was the right campus for me.

To be working on the business side of things in a hospital or care unit.

The egg.

Hopes for this season as a Colonel?

I know, for many of us on the team, our goal is to make the conference playoff by the end of the season.

When/Why did you first begin playing?

My mom and dad were both coaches at my school, with my dad coaching football for 25 years and my mom coaching volleyball. So I was constantly in the gym or on the football field, but always had a volleyball in my hand no matter what. I started playing when I was five and I’ve watched and looked up to my two sisters play through their high school careers.

“Queen of the Court.”

Pepsi.

Betty White.

Favorite professor?

Dr. Edmonds.

Favorite meal to eat on campus?

Chicken patties at late night after practices.

A quote you live your life by?

“Forget the mistake, remember the lesson.”

What does “Be Colonel” mean to you?

To work together and always have eachother’s backs.

Anyone to give a shout-out to?

I would like to give a shout-out to my friends and family who are continuously supporting me in everything that I do. Also, to my teammates for all the support and encouragement that they give me on and off the court.
