Why did you choose this school?:I chose Converse because of the “family vibe” that the campus and staff gave me. I also felt that I can grow academically with their teacher/student ratio. Meeting Coach Clarke (she made everything less scary) and all of the girls on the Field Hockey team solidified that Converse is where I was meant to be. I am so excited to be a Valkyrie!

Anyone you would like to thank?: I would like to thank my Varsity Coach, Janet Wong and our Assistant Coach, Hayley Blockinger. Coach Hayley started my passion for Field Hockey my Freshman year. Coach Wong gave me the fire to dig deep when I made Varsity my Sophomore year. They both were instrumental in my goal to play collegiately. Coach Hayley came with the brutal honesty and Coach Wong gave me the tools to become a hard working athlete and Field Hockey Player. I also would like to thank my Parents and Family! My Mom for being my number one fan, and pushing me every time I doubted myself, and my Dad for working hard to keep his check book open for all of the Field Hockey events! My family for cheering from the sidelines. I am so excited to grow as an athlete and play Field Hockey collegiality! Dream come true!
