How old were you when you started playing lacrosse and what made you pick up a stick?
I was in 6th grade, so I was probably 11 or 12. The reason why I started playing was because it was different from any other sport that I played. In 6th grade we weren't allowed to play modified sports, but I played on the intramural team, and I continued to play because I remember having so much fun, and loved feeling competitive and playing with my friends.
What is your favorite lacrosse memory?
As a coach, my favorite memory was going to states my first year as the assistant varsity coach at Nyack. I was fresh out of college, and I had no idea how I was going to continue to play or keep lacrosse as a part of my life. We had such a great group of girls, and they worked so hard, and it was so exciting and rewarding to watch them do well and get to the final four.
Who was your favorite player to watch growing up?
I remember going to the NCAA tournament in Boston and Northwestern was on top of the world. I admired Kristen Kjellman and the way she played. She was phenomenal at the draw, and I always tried to emulate that in my own playing style.
What was your first stick?
My first stick was a mens brine shaft with a women's head.
