Favorite Portland Restaurant

Bamboo Grove, there is nothing better than good mac salad and teriyaki chicken.

Favorite spot in Portland

Lewis & Clark, it is so beautiful year round and there is no other place I like spending my time (also because I’m forced to).

Favorite athlete

Michael Jordan. Some of my favorite quotes come from him.

Hobbies besides basketball

Exploring Oregon, skiing, golf, trying new foods

Favorite part of being a Student-Athlete at LC?

 My favorite part of LC would be the athletic community and how supportive every member is. Academics is very important to me so I am very lucky I get to study at a great school, but also live out my dream of playing college basketball.

Biggest thrill so far in your athletic career

The game that stands out to me the most would be the first double-double of my career against Willamette. I ate a Chipotle burrito too close to game time and played on a full stomach, but somehow ended up with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

Favorite Food

Any type of Mexican food!

Pregame rituals

I always need my chapstick. I keep it in my sliders for warm-ups, but keep it on the bench during the game and use it as necessary.

Favorite Movie

Monsters University

Favorite Book

Great Gatsby

Your biggest inspiration

My biggest inspiration would be my high school coach and club coach. Over the years, they taught me how to overcome challenges, work hard and have a great work ethic. Without either of them, I would have never developed into the player and person that I am today.

Favorite Portland Restaurant

My favorite restaurant is definitely Bamboo Grove. I could eat there every day. The Shoyu chicken is bomb.

Favorite spot in Portland

I love the Saturday market along the river. You can always find something cool there or just a great food cart, including my personal favorite “The Grilled Cheese Experience”.

Favorite athlete

Lauren Jackson. She’s a beast!

Hobbies besides basketball

Playing ukulele and guitar, writing music, camping/hiking, exploring in general, cycling.

Favorite part of being a student-athlete at LC

I love the supportive atmosphere and how different teams make it a point to go to each other's game. It’s great that we have the opportunity to play basketball, but it’s also great that our experiences here are going to prepare for life after basketball. I think it teaches us that life is a balancing act, you never know what is going to come your way and playing a sport helps prepare you for that.

Biggest thrill so far in your athletic career

I hit a half court shot at halftime of the Men’s game when we were playing at Whitman. I generally brick those shots...that was maybe the 2nd I’ve made in my entire life. I won a free pizza only redeemable in Walla Walla, so unfortunately I didn’t get my pizza but the half court shot was enough for me.

Favorite Food

Thai food and avocados

Do you have any pregame rituals

Listening to music and watching this video called “Mindshift”.

Favorite Movie

The Spectacular Now

Favorite Book

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Your biggest inspiration

Pat Summitt. She was an incredible coach that valued the importance of developing who you are as both a person and a basketball player, two things which I think are really important when being a college athlete.
