Why did you choose Loomis?

I chose Loomis because I immediately felt a sense of family being on campus, and believed I would be most successful here to grow academically and athletically.

What is it like playing two sports on campus?

I enjoy keeping busy, so playing two sports for me is very fun. I value the relationships I have made from being a part of two teams, and how the challenges of a busy schedule has helped prepare me for life beyond Loomis.

How has Loomis helped prepare you for college?

Loomis has created an environment where I am pushed out of my comfort zone, and have been able to grow and mature because of it.

Do you have a special pregame ritual?

I do have some for hockey. For home games, I walk to the rink alone listening to music, I stand in the rink and don’t enter the locker room until an hour before the game, and when I put my equipment on, I put on the left side of my gear before right.

What is your favorite Loomis memory to date?

I have lots of amazing memories at Loomis, but if I had to chose my favorite it would be my first home hockey game my freshman year. I got to play and we won!

What do you like most about living in the dorm?

I love that I get to live with so many of my best friends. When I am feeling down I just step outside my door and have so many people to talk to and support me.

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

My family and I raised 7 ducks in our backyard during quarantine.

What is one thing you learned about yourself during COVID-19?

I learned that I am the type of person who loves to be busy and have a packed schedule, so things were very tough being home for so long. I also missed seeing family and friends, and being able to go to class in person.
