Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat?
Instagram is definitely the one I use the most.   

Are there any pre-game rituals or superstitions that you have on match day?
I always put my gear on in the same order: right sock, left sock, right shoe, left shoe, left shin guard, right shin guard!   

Who is your biggest inspiration (athletic or otherwise)?
My brother is my biggest inspiration.  

Favorite professional sports team?
The Indiana Pacers! Have to stay true to my Indiana roots.   

Favorite sport other than soccer?  
Basketball.   

If you had to win at a random sport, which teammate would you select to play with?
I would pick Morgan Profitt.  

Favorite meal/food? Favorite Milwaukee eatery?
I really don't have a favorite type of food; I am not a very picky eater. My favorite restaurant in Milwaukee is Screaming Tuna, but Kopps is a must for custard.  

Favorite thing to do in Milwaukee?
I love going out to eat downtown and finding fun, local restaurants.   

Is there anything that others are surprised to learn about you?
I have weird shaped thumbs; we call them toe thumbs. Everyone freaks out a bit when they first notice.  

Favorite vacation destination?
Maui, Hawai'i.
