ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK?  “First, I would like to thank my amazing parents for supporting me throughout this journey, especially my mother who drove back and forth to PA for XCalibur practice weekly and to all of the colleges.  Jackie Briggs, who mentored me and taught me that anything is possible if you work hard!  My high school coach Demby Banbury, who not only supported me on the field but was was also my “school mom.”   Joppe de Vries, at University of Maryland who always made training hard so much fun!   Clarence Jennelle and Brian Hope at XCalibur who introduced me to the possibilities of field hockey in college. Jen and Steph Wisniewski at Rampage, who created my love for the goalie position.  Starr Karl at Rampage who introduced me to the sport in 3rd grade.”
