"The game of lacrosse has helped shape me to become the young woman that I am today. It has provided me with life lessons such as perseverance and hard work. I look to use my personal experiences to help mold young athletes and develop an environment where they can reach their goals. I am honored to join the Trilogy Lacrosse team in order to continue to pave the way towards creating a unique lacrosse experience for current and future players."
