I. Academics

What do you enjoy about your major?
I enjoy the natural sciences because they explain the way the world works around us. Also, I have always been fascinated with medicine and the biology of the human body.

What is your favorite class (or professor) and why?
My favorite class, so far, was my VAST course last spring about HIV/AIDS. It was interesting because the course explored not only the scientific aspect of the virus, but also how it has impacted society across the globe.

What is your passion, and how has Lafayette enabled you to pursue it?
I am a very competitive person. Lafayette has given me the opportunity to play at an elite athletic level, while continuing to challenge me in the classroom.

Do you have any post-graduation plans?
I’ve always been interested in the medical field. I hope to continue on to medical school after Lafayette.

II. Athletics

How has the team responded to Coach Stone in her first season as head coach?
Adjusting to a new coach comes with its challenges, but our group worked hard throughout the spring season to make sure we’d be ready for this fall. Our team is lucky to have Jennifer and Laree, who have a remarkable knowledge of the game. As a fresh 2013 unit, we can’t wait to get out on the field and start playing games!

As a co-captain, what leadership roles have you assumed?
We have a great leadership network on our team, starting with the captains but also extending out through upperclassmen. Each leader has her strength, and I think mine is on-field communication.

III. Personal

What is your favorite spot on campus (or in Easton) and why?
I love Cosmic Cup! It’s quiet so I can get schoolwork done, and their drinks and snacks are always tasty.

What song/band/album is most likely to be playing on your iPod?
Any John Mayer album.

What movie can you quote word-for-word?
Remember the Titans

Who is most famous person you have ever met?
Jane Goodall
