MEET THE 'FAMILY'- August 2015
What does being a part of the ‘FAMILY’ mean to you? I know that I will always have a support system behind me now and for the rest of my life. My teammates and sisters are always supporting me both in soccer and outside of athletics whether that is academically or personally. My 'FAMILY' only wants me to succeed and this experience is incredibly special.
Are there any pre-game rituals or superstitions that you have on match day? I always wear the same black, nike sports bra and white ankle socks under my game socks.
Favorite professional sports team? I love the Packers. I am born and raised in Wisconsin so I will always be a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan.
Favorite sport other than soccer? Due to my love for the Green Bay Packers, I would have to say football is my favorite sport other than soccer. I love going to Packer games at Lambeau Field!
Best athlete (non-teammate) at Marquette? Alex 'Gambi' Gambacorta of women's lacrosse
Favorite meal/food? Favorite Milwaukee eatery? The Chancery is by far my favorite restaurant to find the best mac and cheese in town. I also love Joey Gerard’s when I am in the mood for steak with blue cheese dressing!
Is there anything that others are surprised to learn about you? I have a webbed toe on my left foot!
Favorite vacation destination? Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
What type of music do you prefer to listen to? Any favorite artists? I absolutely love country music. I have gone to several country concerts at Summerfest like Hunter Hayes, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line.
Favorite class taken at MU? I took two semesters of French my freshman year with Professor Diakite. He was from Cote d'Ivoire, Africa and he shared so many amazing stories about his experience both in Africa and America.
