Why did you choose this school?:I loved Slippery Rock right when I came on my first visit to campus. I love everything about their field hockey team, coaches, and the campus. Academically, Coach Swiney has a big focus on academics and that was one of the things I was looking for in a college. Additionally, Slippery Rock has a great PA program and that was one of things that also drew me in. SRU was the perfect fit for me academically and athletically.

Anyone you would like to thank?: I want to thank my parents for all of their support throughout this entire process. I would also like to thank all of my club and high school coaches for all of their support and constantly helping me improve my skills. Lastly, I would like to especially thank Ali McEvoy Campbell for all of the training sessions and always pushing me to be the best player I can be. I wouldn’t be who I am today without her constant support.
