Who is your biggest supporter?
My mother and sisters.

Queen Elizabeth I…I’m curious to know how she really felt about the constant adversity and disapproval she faced throughout her reign from both foreign and national adversaries and critics.
Who is your female sports idol?
Dominique Dawes.
What is your favorite movie?

Still Life With Woodpecker, by Tom Robbins.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Consistent, determined, honest.
What was the first sport you ever played?
Basketball in junior high school.
How did you hear about women’s football?
I heard about it from a former D.C. Divas player, Ashley Branch.
Why do you want to play women’s football?
It is an opportunity to participate as an athlete in a sport that predominantly recognizes men as players.
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
As a new player, I understand that I have rather large shoes to fill of the Divas players that came before me. I aspire to play my very best and earn the nickname “Diva”, and I will strive to contribute as much as I can to the team and the sport.
