To all readers...more significant than any accolades or achievements, I love lacrosse and I am passionate about working with aspiring female athletes. As a young athlete myself, I was inspired by lacrosse greats like Theresa Sherry and Jen Adams. In my sophomore year of high school, I hosted two Australian National Team members as they competed in the U19 World Cup. Following that visit, the seed was planted; I knew I would one day want to wear the stars and stripes and represent my country. Achieving this dream in 2009 was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I want to help young women work towards their dreams and find their life meaning.
Lacrosse has provided me tremendous opportunity for growth as an athlete and as a female. It is this same opportunity I want to provide the young women who train with Renegade. We will become tough. We will become tenacious. We will become thirsty to be the best we can be.
