I am from Babylon, New York and I attended West Babylon High School.  I began playing lacrosse when I was in second grade for the youth program in West Babylon.  I haven't put my stick down since then.  I was a five year varsity starter at West Babylon where I was named captain and earned 3X All County, along with being named All American in my Senior year.  During the summer I played for LI Top Guns for eight years.  I decided to continue my lacrosse career at Stony Brook University where I am currently a freshman on the team.

Currently plays at Hofstra University on the women’s lacrosse team as a junior. A psychology major with a minor in community health and planning to attend nursing school after Hofstra.  I have two brothers one of them being my twin.  I am the Vice President of a non-profit organization that I founded and also a mental health advocate for Morgan’s Message.
