When and how did you start playing rugby?
I started playing rugby in 2008 after missing team sports. There wasn't much in the way of women's teams where I lived so after a little searching, I found a posting for open tryouts for the local rugby team and thought "that sounds like fun!". After my first practice, I was hooked!
What is the best thing about being a USA pool player?
Getting to work with an amazing team of women, who are devoted to their sport both on and off the field. I also really enjoy learning from the very experienced cast of coaches and staff who are just as devoted to the players.
What does representing your country mean to you?
Representing my country means playing for more than my own pride. It means working hard for each and every one of my teammates no matter what the cost because in the end, what we do as a team has meaning to all of our supporters and fans.
