Obscure/random fact about you: I enjoy attempting to paint and make random crafts even though I am not very creative or artistic.
Any superstitions? My socks cannot match when I race, and I usually wear the same two socks.
The funniest person on the team is: On the girls team; I think I would have to say Lia. For the boys...I really can't decide. They are all pretty crazy.
My proudest sports moment is: When I won the team spirit award my senior year in high school; the only award to be completely decided on by a team vote.
My favorite class at Siena is: I really enjoyed my Principles of Evolution class
My favorite thing about Siena is: How extremely friendly everyone is and how many opportunities there are to volunteer around the capital region.
Career Plans: At the moment, my ultimate goal career wise is to become a physical therapist and work at either an outpatient clinic or with disabled people. I would also love to have the qualifications needed to be a massage therapist and a yoga instructor.
