Previous clubs: Emerald City FC

Which player most inspired you and why? Michelle Akers. She worked so hard and she was the epitome of what a central midfielder should be despite suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. 

Which coach most inspired you? Chris Kocsis. She was my very first coach from the age of ten. 

What was the best advice they gave you? He taught me how to have fun while working hard and that lesson has been invaluable to me since. 

Best player you've played with? Cynthia Morote-Ariza. 

Toughest opponent? Glasgow City LFC.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? I remember going to tournaments out of town and having fun with my team-mates in a different city. It felt like we were really important travelling to play other teams from the States!

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Enjoy every chance you get to play football. It's a blessing. Also, never let anyone tell you that you aren't good enough. If you work hard and want it more, you can do anything.
