In her own words:
"Over the summer, for work, I am a landscaper working for my high school coach's business. Along with this, I play for the Manchester Mayhem travel softball team and also played occasionally for a 23u travel team for Rocky Hill. My tournaments were the four weekends in July and I would play for Rocky Hill on the Sundays that I did not have my tournaments. I have also begun to give pitching lessons for younger kids in my free time. For entertainment, I would always go bowling, golfing, and hang out with my friends."
