What was the progression that led you to competing in field hockey at the collegiate level? “I have been playing field hockey since I was six years old. I started right here at CR South field hockey summer camp with coach (Lisa) Belz and coach (Colette) Paprocki as the youngest camper in attendance. I became a member of Mystx Field Hockey Club. As I started to play more competitively, I knew this was my passion.
“My recruiting process started in seventh grade and ended in April of my junior year when I committed to East Stroudsburg. My mom has been my motivation to play in college since I started playing. She was a college field hockey player herself, and I have always wanted to follow her footsteps. I am excited that I get to do just that at East Stroudsburg.
