What affect did playing basketball have on your life?
"Basketball had a huge impact on my life. I loved it and dedicated a large part of my life to it. The people were most important, the discipline, and the pride I felt each time I put on my uniform. I received the first basketball scholarship for women at UWYO and consider myself a pioneer in Wyoming Women's Basketball. I will be a Cowgirl FOREVER! It has been such a privilege to be a part of Wyoming Athletics."

Favorite Wyoming Memory:
"My favorite memory was my entire experience at the University of Wyoming but I would have to narrow it down to my teammates. They each had a huge impact on me. Respect for my coaches, especially Coach McDonald and all the hard work we all put into our dream of playing competitive Division I basketball."
