So here we go!
1. Well, first and foremost, everyone knows this about me but, considering the AMAZING VICTORY LAST NIGHT, it needs to be repeated: I am, and always have been, the biggest LeBron James fan on planet Earth. I don’t care what anyone says about him because watching him play basketball makes me so happy. He is the ultimate athlete. I might have cried when he announced he was coming to Miami, and I may or may not have cried last night when they won.

The King

2. I was born in Jensen Beach, FL – so I am a true Floridian! We moved up North when I was 5, but I visited family down here a lot and somehow wound up back in Florida for college. I want to stay for as long as possible because sunshine, beaches and palm trees are my jam.

3. I  am awkwardly ambidextrous. I write with my right hand, but throw & do pretty much everything else with my left. My strong hand in lacrosse is my left, and I was a very left footed soccer player.

4. I will always believe that the 1999 women’s world cup team – Mia hamm, kristine lilly, julie, brandi, michelle…did something that will never, ever be duplicated. They were my heroes as a kid and gave me the confidence and mindset to pursue athletics, coaching and sports performance.

The greatest team ever

5. I tore my ACL – not once, but twice, in college – and even though it was one of the hardest things ever, I am glad I went through it. The mental toughness and the determination to rehab and come back stronger taught me a lot of things about myself. It is also proof that if you work hard enough, you can achieve whatever you want, no matter what anyone says. People are always shocked to find out how much I can lift and sprint despite the surgeries and bad ass scars.

6. I won two goldfish at a fair in 4th grade [Lucy and Ethel] & they lived to be 13 years old. I think that is some kind of unofficial record. It was a lowkey tragedy when they died.

7. One day, I will be going to the Olympics affiliated with SOME team – so look for me. 😉

    I LOVE your #7!!!!!!!!!!! Love love love! Get it girl 😀

  2. YEaaaah buddy. Ok Ok, I don’t hate Lebron like a lot of people do (I’m just still a little sad and bitter about the C’s.) More power to him. And I didn’t know you tore your ACL twice?!? Get it girl. It is the most frustrating thing as an AT to have an athlete re-tear after rehab, so it’s awesome to see you doing so much in the weight room after going through it twice! Ah, can I come with you to the Olympics? We could be one mean AT/Strength Coach team, if I do say so myself…

    • hahah aw good i’m glad you don’t hate lebron and that we can be friends again! and HELL YEAH to the Olympics – we’d be such a bad ass duo. Gold medal quality for sure!!
