What do you like most about being a student athlete at Siena?
Being a student athlete at Siena gives me the opportunity to represent the College as an athlete, a member of a team and as an individual. Sports have a large impact on any college campus; therefore as a student athlete I have an important role on and off the field. Being a student athlete shows we can balance our time between school and sport, while bringing recognition to the school, and keeping our heads high no matter what the outcome may be. Being able to represent Siena in this way is what I love best about being a student athlete.
What will you miss most when you graduate?
The aspects of field hockey I will miss most are being part of a team, and playing the sport at a competitive level. I will miss the camaraderie with my teammates, and the encouragement and support we give each other throughout the season. Since the sport has been a part of my life for so many years, it is hard to think that come next year it won't have such a major role.
