Why did you decide to join Cazenovia College Athletics?
I decided to join Cazenovia athletics because it was very welcoming and such a family environment. It was a good way to make friends and connections.
What is your least favorite memory as an athlete and how has that experience made you a better person and/or athlete?
My least favorite memory would be losing to Morrisville in our Final Four game last year. It has made me a better athlete because I know our team can make it all the way and we have so much potential, so it has given me even more drive to be better and work harder.
Who is your biggest influence in your life? Why?
My biggest influence in my life would be my dad. He was the one who got me to play lacrosse which has since been a big part of my life. He has always been there for me and has made me into the person I am today.
What is your most memorable moment here at Cazenovia College?
My most memorable moment here at Caz has been our team winning our playoff game against Wells College in double overtime by one point, which then put us into the Final Four game.

Some of my favorite hobbies are hanging out with friends, playing lacrosse, and racing motocross.
When did you start playing this sport? Was it something that changed your life?
I started playing lacrosse my sophomore year of high school and it has sense changed my life in a positive way because of all the people I have met through it and the memories I have made in only a few short years.
Without this sport, would you be the same person you are today? Why?
If I did not play lacrosse, I feel as if I would be a very different person. It has given me a completely new drive and motivation, even outside of the sport. I would also be different without the people who I have met along the way.
Describe what it is like to be a part of the Cazenovia community.
The Cazenovia Community has been a great place to get to know over the course of the past two years. It has been nothing but welcoming and helpful for anything I may need.
How would you describe yourself as an athlete? What motivates you as a player?
As an athlete, I would describe myself as very motivated and determined to be the best I can be. Looking ahead into the future and knowing what our team could be motivates me to put in the extra work to be the best I can.
What is one item you can’t live without?
One item I can't live without would be my lacrosse stick.
