Walk up song? Love on Top by Beyonce

What's your favorite Kali memory? HOW DO I PICK ONE?!? Probably the series last year and peaking at the right moment but also even after we lost we were all just so proud of each other and I think everyone was just sad that it was over but we all still loved each other the same if not more.

Why do role models matter? My role model is/was Dena Slattery. She’s believed in me so much both on and off the field. She pushed me to be a better ultimate player by helping me one on one and encouraging me to tryout for club teams when I was still in high school. She also pushed me to be a better person and help me figure out who I am. She’s so important, as are other role models, because it is so nice to have someone you aspire to play like/be like support and encourage you.

What does equity mean to you? Equality for all. No matter what.

What's your favorite quote? Jean brought this quote to our team last year: "If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."
