Softball hitting/lefty slapper and fielding

I started playing softball at age 8 years old and decided I loved the game so much I wanted to play competitively at age 11. I knew I wanted to play collegiately so my parents sacrificed and drove the 500 miles almost weekly to allow me to play for a gold level ASA team, The Absolute Blast, my junior and senior year in high school.  I was only the 3rd softball player in the state of Idaho at the time to earn a Division 1 scholarship to play softball at Purdue University in the Big Ten Conference.  There, I played under 1996 softball Olympic Gold Medalist Kim Maher.  While at Purdue I started all four years as both a left fielder and ending as the starting center fielder. Running a 2.6 second home to first and 11.4 second home to home, I assisted the team leading the Big Ten Conference in most stolen bases in 2009 and then lead the nation as a team in most stolen bases in 2010. I posted a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage leading the Big Ten Conference my senior year in center field.

While at Purdue I earned a degree in psychology, a degree in sociology, and a minor in forensic sciences in four years. I am currently entering my 4th year as the assistance varsity coach for East High School. I have been coaching privately for the past 4 years.
