“I’m humbled and honored to be a part of the program that helped shape me into the woman I am today. I will strive to bring on a championship mentality – rooted with respect, courage, and dignity. Immaculate Conception Softball will be a program that carries quality young women, a family culture, and players who exhibit grit. I am taking on this position as a leader because I believe strongly in the impact of role models among athletes. I want nothing more than to give back to the game of softball, and more importantly my Alma Mater. I will work hard to create a program consisting of resilient and hard-working young women who can maximize their potential both on and off the field. My goal will be to enhance their softball IQ, helping to prepare them for what it takes to be a collegiate athlete – all while striving to impact their lives as young women along the way. Go Blue Wolves!”
