What do you bring to the team? Experience, hard work, leadership, and some laughter and fun!
Why do you love soccer? The comaraderie and teamwork it takes to be successful on and off the field, the relationships formed, life lessons learned and the experiences and memories you take away from it all. I also love to compete and the accomplishment of winning after all the hard work with your teammates is always a great feeling!
What are you excited about? I'm excited to play again at a high level and continue to push myself and my teammates to always strive to improve and grow. I am also looking forward to creating memories on and off the field with current friends and a lot of new ones!
What is special about the glory? The glory is built on a foundation of not just wanting to play competitive soccer, but the mentorship of young women, building positive community relationships, and creating lifelong friendships.
For me, this is an opportunity to be a part of something so much bigger than me. It's a chance to not only grow in my soccer ability but to help guide the younger girls on this team still figuring out what's after college. I think in turn I will also find out more about myself as I continue to navigate life and and maybe even guide some of them into the nursing field 🙂 I am so grateful to be able to be a part of the glory family!
