When and how did you start playing rugby?
I started playing rugby as a freshman at Texas A&M University. I went to the schools open house registration for clubs and organizations, originally planning on joining the powerlifting team. While looking for the booth I ran into a couple of the members of the women's rugby club, they convinced me to come to practice even though I had never heard of the sport. The rest is history.
What is the best thing about being a USA pool player?
I enjoy continuously pushing the boundaries of my physical limits. Playing with the national team I am always surrounded by hard-working individuals who challenge me to always be be better and grow.
What does representing your country mean to you?
The best way I can describe playing for my country, is the feeling I get when I put on the USA jersey and take the field in an international match, singing the national anthem with the best rugby players in the country, it gives me chills. To me that is what representing my country is about, that moment. All of my hard-work, training, and prepartation all for that moment.
