WHY DID YOU CHOOSE PENN?  “I chose UPenn because it was a perfect fit academically, athletically and socially for me with a beautiful campus in Philly. It’s exciting to be a part of Coach Fink’s team. She has a very positive and encouraging approach. I believe she will help me take my game to the next level.”

ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK?  “I want to thank my Mom for persuading me to play field hockey (not soccer) when I was younger. She & Coach TJ always made rec field hockey so much fun. My high school coach, Kat Ross, is a great role model & it’s a great experience to be a player on her team. Last but not least, I want to thank Jun, Richard and Jaja Kentwell, as well as Guy Cathro from WC Eagles for pushing me to be the best player I can be. I am inspired by their hard work and dedication.”
