What does it mean for you to represent your country at this level? 
It's a tremendous honor to represent my country in the World Tournament on two different occasions. It has been my dream since I was a child to participate in one of my favorite sports wearing the letters of my country across my chest. 

What you do enjoy the most about fast pitch softball? 
I enjoy the fast paced rate of the game. The fact that each player involved has to make split second decisions accurately makes the game intense and fun to be a part of. 

How did you get started in fast pitch?
 I got started playing softball growing up watching my dad absolutely crush the ball, making it look easy. That to me was very fascinating, but the person that I'd like to thank most would be Gregg Leather for introducing me to the USA Junior Men's coaching staff and giving me the opportunity of trying out for the 2014 team.
