- How did you hear about the opportunity to be a GA at Goucher?
I heard about the GA opportunity online. I was already in the Education Graduate program so I happened to be on the website and saw the opening.
- What attracted you to Goucher?
I grew up not far from Towson so I always knew of Goucher and thought it was a beautiful campus. I started looking into Graduate programs and Goucher's seemed to fit me best. Once I found the GA position and got to know the head coach, I knew the program would be a great fit for me.
- What impact do you want to have on the program at Goucher?
I want to help Coach Sarah positively grow this program and help our players not only grow into amazing players but amazing women as well.
- What do you like most about the team/Goucher so far? (it's okay if you can't answer this question because of lack of interactions)
I have no met the team yet but I love Coach Sarah and her passion to grow the program.
- What are you hoping to learn while you are at Goucher?
I am hoping to learn and see different perspectives of leadership being a part of a totally different program than I have ever been on.
- What are your plans after getting your Master's Degree?
My plans are to be a Special Education teacher.
- What is your favorite part of playing your sport?
I love the family aspect of being on a team. I am excited to have a different role on a college lacrosse team.
- What lessons did you learn from your playing experience that you want to instill in your student-athletes at Goucher?
Your college athlete years go fast and you are going to miss them so much when they are over- even the run tests. Don't take these years for granted.
