Q&A

Memorable Win:

I'm ecstatic and shocked and so honored to have finished in second place at United States Women's Disc Golf Championships, my best finish at a Major event. It was so amazing to battle with Hokom during the rounds, even while she was playing at the top of her game, too. I use that weekend as inspiration to work hard in the future. It's nice to see when your full potential comes out all at one time, and I hope to make it a much more consistent thing in the future!

Advice:

If you are aware and accepting of the bigger picture and everything surrounding you before approaching your shot, not only will you truly enjoy your rounds, but your game will improve. Also, with preparation comes satisfaction, even if performance is not always up to par.
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." (Rachel Carson)

Also, PUTT, PUTT, and PUTT some more!

Goals:

Short term, I'd like to place in the top 10 in every National Tour in 2016 and visit all 50 states. Long term, I want to get my PhD in Marine Biology, work as a research SCUBA diver, be a professional surfer, do a Big Year, and be the best putter in the world.
