What is the best thing about Pitt?
The people for sure. I love the friends I’ve made at Pitt. The city is also a fun place to be.
Who has made the biggest impact in your soccer career? Why?
Jenny Pease (Csonka), my trainer, because she keeps me alive and functional through the many injuries that I’ve had the past three years.
Who is your funniest teammate? Why?
Definitely Caroline. She has this dry wit that is impossible not to laugh at even if she makes the situation extremely awkward.
What do you like most about the city of Pittsburgh? Why?
There are so many cool places to go and things to do. There is always somewhere you haven’t been to yet.
What was your greatest moment in athletics?
Committing to play Division I soccer, which was my goal growing up and now having the chance to play in the best conference in the nation.
Favorite postgame snack or meal?
I am obsessed with oatmeal and salmon. Not together, but those are two of my favorite foods.
Favorite thing to do on campus?
Go to Razzy Fresh. I’m seriously obsessed.
Best Halloween costume you ever wore?
Last year Caroline, Alyssa, Morgan, Nicole and I were the Fab 5 gymnastics team. Our costumes were awesome, I’m not going to lie.
