Personal Highlights

Field Hockey brought me back to my international roots. I am even more inspired to play and compete at an elite level.

Although I am American, I was born in Singapore and lived there until I was almost 10 years old. I enjoyed my travel experiences in Asia, Europe, Australasia, and the U.S. This worldly exposure gives me a quiet confidence and helps me understand how things relate to the world around me.

As I entered Junior year, MAX Field Hockey selected me as a Top 100 Player in the Country (Next 50), and the only nationally ranked player in my grade from Illinois (2019 graduate). MAX Field Hockey Honors included: All American Watch List, State Player of the Year (Illinois), and Top 25 'Players to Watch' in the West/Mid-West Region. Post-season, I was IHSFHA Illinois Player of the Year, All State First Team, All Conference, and All Star team selection. I was also named to the NFHCA Midwest All-Region Team. MAX Field Hockey post-season awards included State Player of the Year and All-Region First Team for the West/Mid-West region. I also received ed NFHCA National Academic Squad honors.

Representing my high school and the local Glen Ellyn community is heart-felt, and a testament to the passion and grassroots support of our growing field hockey community and our Glenbard West athletic department leadership. It is challenging but rewarding to help elevate our high school program to be a viable state competitor. Freshman year we competed in our first ever state championship game, falling to the incumbent 1-0, earning 2nd place. Sophomore year we placed 3rd in the State of Illinois and were awarded our team trophy by 4 past field hockey Olympians, including two that competed at the Rio Games. Junior year we were 3rd in State, and were a Regionally Ranked Team every week of the season, finishing #17 of the Top 20 Teams in our 11-state West/Mid-West Region. Glenbard West was even ranked Nationally for two weeks at the start of the 2017 season, an incredible honor for our hard-working team.

It's been a great experience competing with my local teams, and I have learned a lot from the older players as my mentors. I, in turn, value my mentoring role to the younger players and how we continue to place Glen Ellyn, Illinois on the national field hockey map, individually, but more importantly, as a Team.

I have participated in Futures since 2013 and Level 1 since 2016. I competed at the National Futures Championship in 2016 and 2014, but was unable to compete at the 2017 Regional Tournament due to injury (broken foot). 2018 spring season was recovery mode, after an intense 2017 fall season that forced me to rest my foot for the 2018 winter season.

In order to support our local field hockey program and juggle my other sports and volunteer schedules, I have competed with two different club teams: my local Glen Ellyn team for indoor and with Milwaukee Field Hockey for outdoor. Just 2+ years after Glen Ellyn started our indoor program, I helped lead my team to NITs -- our first ever national team event, so it was really special. In 2017-18 I became a USA Field Hockey Coach for our U16 and U19 GEFH Indoor travel teams that competed at the 2018 NITQ. It was challenging, rewarding, and a great learning experience to coach my peers at a national qualifier event.

I loved my Dutch experience in Europe (summer 2017) and look forward to returning in 2018 for more international elite training. Training and competing with elite athletes from throughout Europe, the US and around the world was amazing. Competing in mixed teams with boys and girls meant fast, competitive games and exposure to a variety of playing styles. Coaching was top notch, just incredible! World renown coaches helped me refine my technique and pushed me to be the best athlete I can be. I really love The Netherlands!

I have made many field hockey friends in my own community, across many states, and now have hockey friends throughout the world. This inspires and motivates me on so many levels!

I really enjoy being a multi-sport athlete. I have excellent Track & Field high school coaches. The highly competitive but supportive team setting is a perfect fit for me. I like the challenge of daily speed and technical training along with strength conditioning. Hurdles and sprint relays are my favorite events. As a freshman, I earned a Varsity letter and All Conference honors in Track. Sophomore year I was sidelined by a broken foot, but worked hard to recover enough to compete in Conference & Sectionals, earning points for my varsity team at both meets. I received All Conference and my team was Illinois WSC Silver Conference Champions, only the second time in 25 years! Glenbard West secured our first ever Girls Track Illinois State Championship in 2017. I was honored to be on this team as an alternate, and played an important part of our team's success at State. What an incredible experience! The 2018 indoor & outdoor Track season daily training was balanced with injury recovery, so my speedwork occurred very late in the season. I was happy to achieve All Conference in 100mH & 300mH, also placed in Sectionals my junior year.
