What are your majors/minors and career aspirations?

“I am a business management major with a track in human resources and minor in psychology. When I graduate, I want to work in human resources.”

What made you want to play softball at, or just simply come to, Salisbury?

“I came to Salisbury because I wanted to be part of a competitive athletics program as well as a competitive academic program.”

What has been your favorite moment as part of SU softball while here at Salisbury, and why?

“My freshman year, winning super regionals to get into the national championship tournament. Most teams never make it to the national tournament, and to get to play in it my freshman year was really exciting.”

What do you enjoy about playing in the outfield, and what do you believe that you bring to the team with your abilities?

“On defense I feel my strength is my speed, which helps me get to more balls. Offensively, as the lead-off batter, I have to be the catalyst early in the game to get the bats going.”
