What is your favorite aspect of playing volleyball for the Cowgirls?
"I love being a part of a team. Competing and traveling with my teammates; I just love my teammates."

What is your favorite class at the University?
"My favorite class would have to be Theater with Professor Downs; it's a fun class."

What foods do you like the best at the Washakie Dining Hall?
"It would have to be the pizza. It's a constant for me."

What do you think is the reason you've been able to step up as a freshman and contribute the way you have?
"Well I'm a little bit older than the rest of the freshman and I have a little bit more experience. I come in and watch film a lot and I work hard because I'm driven. I want to be on that court and I want to make a difference, so I think that hard work is the reason and it's paid off for me."

Talk about what made you decide to come to Wyoming?
"I wanted to be apart of a big program and a place that I knew was going to go places. I wanted to go somewhere where I could make a difference and when I got here, I liked Pat (Stangle) a lot and what he was doing. I knew that we could make an impact in the conference."

What CD are you currently listening to in your car?
"Mariah Carey."
