My friends from Chicago got me involved in a clinic where I realized I loved to play.

What are your goals having this clinic? 

My goals in having this clinic are to introduce the sport to as many girls as possible and for everyone involved to have a lot of fun.What have you learned from playing lacrosse?

Playing lacrosse has taught me a lot about perseverance and working hard toward your goals.

Any favorite memories? 

My favorite memory from lacrosse has been from our Chicago tournament with my West Des Moines Club team when we got caught in a downpour and finished the game with a win.

What inspired you to bring a team to CF

When I moved to Cedar Falls I was really bummed there wasn’t a team, so I thought it would be fun to try to bring the sport here.
