You were previously at Tennessee Tech, what attracted you to come to NMSU?
Home. I knew how well the team was doing. I had played half a season of club for Ash (Assistant Coach Ashley Hardee) and I loved playing for him. I wanted to play in a better conference, better coaches with better teams and I wanted to come home to New Mexico because it's awesome!

How difficult has it been sitting out and watching the team play?
It's pretty hard but I'm really glad I redshirted this year because I've improved so much already. I didn't start off, I didn't get in my own groove yet so now I have and I have the whole spring to improve too so I'm really happy. But it is hard to just sit and watch but I love cheering on this team. They're so fun to watch.

What would you say has been the biggest thing you've been able to improve?
Probably blocking and hitting from the middle because I always played right-side at Tech but I've always practiced in the middle. So just movements as a middle.

What are you hobbies and do you have time to do them during the season?
Anything outdoors. I like just walking around. I like hunting and shooting trap and stuff but I don't have a lot of time.

What's something about yourself that most people don't know?
I've been a dancer since 2nd grade all the way through my senior year of high school.

What kind of dance?
Ballet, jazz, tap, ballroom, pretty much everything.

What does being an Aggie mean to you?
It's freakin' awesome. I love being an Aggie! It's such a change from my old school. I'm so happy to be here. I'm so happy to be on this team.
