Q: You are a team co-captain for the 2008 season, what does serving in that important role mean to you?
A: Being a captain is a huge honor. To me it means that my teammates look to me to be a leader on and off the field.

Q: In your opinion, what is the most difficult part of the sport of lacrosse?
A: I think the most difficult part of the sport of lacrosse is catching. We don't have deep pockets so you really have to give with the ball. It is one of the hardest skills to master when first starting out.

Q: The word "family" is often associated with the Penn State women's lacrosse program. What are your thoughts on that family-type atmosphere?
A: We really are a family. As teammates, we all live with each other and spend almost all of our free time together. We are one big family and truly enjoy each other's company. Our coaches take care of us just like our Mom's would. They are genuinely concerned with our best interest and are great people.

Q: You were a highly-touted recruit coming into Penn State, how did you deal with the pressure that comes along with that kind of notoriety?
A: I did have a lot of pressure coming into Penn State and throughout my career, but the support of my teammates and coaches has really helped me to reduce that. I just try to go out and play my game and not worry about any pressure.

Q: What do you love about playing lacrosse at Penn State?
A: I love being able to play the sport I love at such a great place. The people here are amazing and this town is one of a kind. I couldn't ask for anything better!

Q: What are your aspirations after graduation?
A: After graduation I either want to teach elementary school or become a lacrosse coach... or both!
