I spent the first part of my life in Wisconsin before resettling in Colorado for high school. Most of my time was spent running cross country and playing soccer before being introduced to ultimate in my senior year at Lakewood High School (2008). I played the following summer with the Colorado YCC team, Cutthroat, before returning to the Midwest for my college years. There, I played for Northwestern University GungHo and Chicago Nemesis.
I am now entering my fourth year with Boston Brute Squad, with whom I won the 2015 and 2016 National Championships. I was also on the U.S. Women’s National Team squad that won gold at the World Ultimate and Guts Championships in 2016.
When I’m not playing ultimate, I spend my time cooking, eating and designing robotic vacuum cleaners for iRobot. The singularity will come in the form of Roombas.
