Why did you choose this school?: I was fortunate enough to attend many camps and clinics at Duke, and every time I left Durham with a special feeling. The coaches, the counselors, the players and everyone we seemed to meet on our visits loved both the school and the Duke True field hockey family. Ultimately, to be able to study at such a fantastic university while playing the game I love for one of the greatest coaches/teachers in the game is simply a blessing.

Lastly, my past and current coaches: Coach Brady, Aunt Cindy, Coach Em, and my club coach Sarah Dawson.
