WHAT WILL YOU MAJOR IN/STUDY?  Undecided

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE WAKE FOREST?  “Wake was a perfect fit when I walked on campus my freshman year of high school. Wake’s academics and athletics were exactly what I was looking for when I committed. The academic support and future placement after graduation was important when making my college decision, and Wake excels at both. I had one more college to visit, and that was Wake Forest, and I fell in love with the campus on my first visit, from the coaching staff to the classrooms, to the team.”

ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK?  “I am fortunate to be supported by my parents in everything I do. They made sure I was surrounded by incredible coaches from the beginning. Andy and Gina Allessie played a huge role in my initial training, and building the player I am today. Many thanks to Coach Jen Beaumont Schroeder, my first private coach and indoor coach at XCalibur; I’m very grateful for her experience and insight. I’m thankful to my high school coaches, Jessica Rose Shellenberger and Heather Conroy-Hower, who ensured that I trained at the highest level since I started working with them in 6th grade.”
