Previous clubs: Emerald City FC

Which player most inspired you and why? Mia Hamm. She always gave 100% when she was on the field, never gave up and you could tell she loved the game.

Which coach most inspired you? Leighton O'Brien.

What was the best advice they gave you? Keep working as hard as you can on the soccer field and you can play anywhere.

Best player you've played with? Kate Bennett.

Toughest opponent? Chico State University.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? My first memories have always been special because I remained on the same team from the age of ten until I left for college. I remember the friendships I made, which will last forever, and all of the tournaments my team was given the opportunity to go to.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? I would tell them to keep making connections with people in the soccer business who can help them get trials at university or good club teams. I would also tell them never to give up – if you have a dream then work hard and you can achieve anything.
