Player biography :

I started playing at State College Area High School in 2006. I played for the MARFU and EPRU all-stars in High School. Then I went to Paraguay and played with the Encarnacion Men's Rugby Club. Then I traveled to New Zealand and played rugby with Marist Saint Pats and Oriental Rongotai in Wellington. Then I started playing at Penn State where we placed second in the US Women's College National Championship my Freshman year. We then won four consecutive National Championships. I started playing for the Collegiate All-Americans my Sophomore year. I've been selected into the US Eagle pool consistently since my Junior year of college. I have played summer 7s for Scion and then moved to Seattle to play for the Saracens. My first game they started me at nine in an A-side game. I did not know what to do for scrums and the first one was a defensive scrum. My coach yelled at me from the sideline that the second she tapped the ball, I was supposed to tackle her. So when she tapped the ball on the hookers hand to start the scrum I laid her out. The referee freaked out and my team had to explain that I didn't know what I was doing. I'm most proud of being a part of the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 National Collegiate Champions at Penn State. Also being selected as a 2014 Collegiate All-American and to the touring squad in 2014 and 2013, USA Eagles camps, 2010 All-Star National Champions with MARFU, 7s National Collegiate Champions in 2015. CRC champions in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
