Personal: Born Sept. 8, 1995 in Scotts Valley, Calif.... On why she chose USD: "Aside from the beautiful location in the bustling city of San Diego, I could not pass up on the opportunity to compete at a DI level. In college I will strive to better myself in every aspect possible: academically, athletically, and spiritually. USD provides incredible opportunities for me to grow in all three of these areas"... Was also recruited by Willamette University, Seattle Pacific University, and Notre Dame de Namur... On making the transition from track to cross country: "As a devoted sprinter from 6th grade to 9th grade, I never fathomed the idea of running more than 400 meters in a race. Yet somehow, I became involved in cross country my sophomore year. I fell in love with the sport and have pursued this passion ever since".
