Why did you choose Moravian College?

I wanted to be apart of a close knit community and I fell in love with the campus, also to continue the family legacy :) 

What is your major and why?

Occupational Therapy, I want to be able to help people live their life to the fullest by helping them regain lost or needed motor skills and promote health in daily activities.

What has been your favorite course at Moravian and why?

Anatomy and Physiology. Although it is the hardest class I have ever taken, it has been a great challenge and showed me what I am capable of.   

What are your plans for the future once you finish your degree at Moravian?

To work hard and be successful with wherever my degree takes me.

What is your most memorable moment as a Greyhound?

In the locker room before the first game we had a pinning ceremony that signified the moment that we officially became a Greyhound. I had the honor of being pinned by my sister. 

How has being an athlete helped you as a student and in the classroom?

I got extremely good at time management and I am always on top of my work. I know that in order to be successful on the court I have to apply myself in the classroom and get my work done in order to play.

What is the hardest part of your sport?

Not that it is necessarily hard, but it is a very long season so it is important to stay motivated and grind through it.

Why do you wear your jersey number?

My father, the biggest influence in my life, wore 14 in high school.  It is an other incentive to go all out in practices and games and to leave everything on the court.

Name one obstacle or form of adversity you have had to overcome.

Finding time to sleep! 

Why is community service important to your role as a student-athlete at Moravian?

I think it is extremely important to give back to the less fortunate. A community is a group of people living in the same place or having common characteristics and in that sense we should look out for each other. I believe that giving back to the community promotes collectivism and selflessness. Personally it is a really special feeling to know that I was able to help or touch the heart of an other person.

What advice do you have for a prospective Moravian College student-athlete?

Student-athletes put a lot of time into their sport and school work so do it right. Never be satisfied and give your absolute best otherwise you are wasting your gift. It doesn't take skill to work hard and no one cares about the excuses you make.
