 What did you do this summer?...  Over the summer I was an assistant coach on two AAU teams. 

 What makes St. Thomas Special?...The thing that is really unique about UST is that you are in between two bigger cities, but you feel like you are in your own little world. Because of this we have a strong sense of community. I love that my professors and other faculty make an effort to get to know me.

What are you looking forward to most this year?...I am really looking forward to playing with the new people that have joined our team, and teaching them what it means to be a UST Women's Basketball player

What is your favorite dessert?...Summertime Strawberry Cupcakes from Sweet Retreat

What is your favorite vacation spot/future destination?... Disney World

What is your favorite artist?...I am obsessed with Beyoncé!

What is on your pre-game mix?... My pre-game mix includes a little bit of everything. I love songs that make you want to get up and dance because it can help take away any nerves that may come with a big game.

Who is your favorite athlete?... Michael Jordan, Tony Parker, Lindsay Whalen, Keri Walsh Jennings, & many more :)

What is on the top of your bucket list?...Ever since I turned 18 I have always wanted to go skydiving (I have just never had the courage to actually do it) :)
