Personal: Daughter of David Jennifer Hammel...Has two brothers, Jon and Matt...Favorite Quote: "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard."...Words of Advice: "To all the younger players, go out and have fun. I discovered my passion for the game by just playing and not worrying about how I was doing or what my stats were. Be present, and have fun in all that you do."
