Which player most inspired you and why? Natalie Capuano. Her work ethic was something I have never seen before and her drive to become a better player in every aspect of her game was contagious.

Which coach most inspired you? Pauliina Miettinen.

What was the best advice they gave you? Work on your weaknesses. 

Best player you've played with? Beverly Goebel. 

What are your memories of your first club as a child? We were a big group of friends who started to play at the same time. The tournaments were a blast as a kid.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Work hard, especially on your weaknesses. Also, don't try to achieve everything straightaway, success can come later in your career.
