Why did you choose to play the goalie position?
I was mostly encouraged to fully commit to the positing in my summer before high school by Ginny. I had been playing around with it on my rec teams and for my club team, but I still enjoyed playing both sides of the game. Soon enough though, I realized that goalie was the perfect position for me.      

What do you personally do to reset after a goal is scored?
I think about the situation that just occurred. I replay it in my head and analyze my actions. After this, I forget it and mentally envision myself saving the next one.

What was the hardest thing thus far that you had to learn as a goalie?
That losing isn’t my fault. You win and lose as a team and even though you are the last line of defense and your mistakes are shown on a giant scoreboard for everyone to see there are so many other factors of the game.       What was your greatest achievement as a goalie?Playing with a team that went on to win a national championship.    

What is your largest strength as a goalie and/or leader?
My mental toughness. I know that my confidence is created and taken away by none other than myself. Knowing this has turned me into a player that has a mental capacity to overcome adversity.
Who has inspired you the most in your life?
Ginny Capicchioni. She has helped me the most to become that player that I am today. And I am eternally grateful for that.

What do you hope to become – career?
I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. With this I hope to do some work with either artificial intelligence or internet security.
