What do you want to pursue with your degree?: My plan is to attend McCombs School of Business and participate in their Entrepreneur program, which is a top 10 program in the country and there are worse things than having a class taught by Matthew McConaughey. I’m just finishing my Freshman year so I don’t know exactly what career I’m going to pursue once I hang up my cleats. For now, I’m focused on being the very best student athlete I can be, getting an incredible education, and starting to build and expand my professional work.

Who inspires you and why?: My dad inspires me everyday. He is my other half and pushes me to become the best version of myself. His work ethic and continuous dedication to the things he loves inspires me to be better. I am very lucky to be his daughter.

Favorite soccer memory?: Scoring my first goal for Texas was so surreal. It was a packed game and when I came in we were losing. My coach told me to go in and change this game. I got my chance 4 minutes into the second half I scored a one touch off of a cross. I remember hearing everyone cheer my name so loud that it made me want to tear up. The feeling of my team hugging me and the support I got from them made me feel like I was a part of a family. I am also so glad I got to share it with my family that was there.

Why did you choose Sioux Falls City FC?: The people and the community. Right from the start when I met Joe I knew I could trust him. After meeting the team I knew I made the right choice. I knew this was the place I needed to go over the summer to elevate my game and to win a championship!


I started playing soccer when I was 4 along with so many other sports. Eventually it narrowed down to soccer, basketball, and softball. Soccer was the most fun to me and I just loved the game. As I got older I began getting call ups to USA and other amazing opportunities like traveling to Spain with the ODP team. That was an amazing feeling because working hard was paying off. I never played high school soccer, I trained with a guys team instead to work on my quickness and IQ. I continued to push myself everyday and ended up committing to the University of Texas at Austin to continue playing soccer. The journey is not even close to over and I want to become the best version of myself on and off the field. I hope to play pro soccer one day.
