What does it mean for you to represent your country at this level? It means the world to me that I get to represent and play the game of softball for the country I love. It has humbled me to know that I can compete with the best of the best, and it makes me want to work hard on and off the field.


What you do enjoy the most about fast pitch softball? The high speed and intensity


How did you get started in fast pitch?

My little sister has played for awhile and going to her games made me interested in the game. My friend and (now) teammate, Taylor Weldon, asked me if I wanted to play with him and his team one weekend. I went and that's when I fell in love with the game.
