Three words to describe herself: funny, likable and honest

What does it mean to represent USA Softball? "There are really no words for it. It's something all of us have worked our whole life for. So now having the opportunity to do it, it's unreal."

What she enjoys most about playing softball: "The competitiveness of the sport, and softball has given me some of my best friends."
