When and how did you start playing rugby?
I started playing rugby in college. As I was walking into my dorm one evening, a few of the rugby girls on campus recruited me to come and check out a practice. I was interested in seeing it because I had never heard of the sport before. I very quickly fell in love and have been playing ever since.
What is the best thing about being a USA pool player?
Having the opportunity to represent your country in any way is an absolute honor. But I love knowing that I am part of a whole, that is bigger than myself. I am part of a team where each member is working and training hard everyday to be the best individual they can be, knowing that when we come together, the whole team will benefit from the work that each individuals put in. The motivation that comes from strengthening myself in every way possible to better the team that will represent the USA in competition, is incredible.
