I am a women's basketball fanatic! My Shawnee State University Lady Bears was the 2000 National Champions and 2001 National Tournament Elite 8 Finalists. I am a true nerd of the game — I actually enjoy studying film and scouting. I am also passionate about helping animals. In addition to regularly volunteering at the Animal Humane Society, I found an outlet for my competitive spirit by raising the most money for the 2007 AHS' Walk for Animals. Fundraising for God's loving little furballs truly brought my heart joy!
