(What you won't find on Facebook...even if you are approved as a friend)
Hometown: Bettendorf, Iowa
High School: Bettendorf
I picked Central because of the strong academics, tennis and the cute town with lots of friendly people.
Favorite professor and why
Dr. Diers from the education department is my favorite professor because she uses a lot of stories in class. Also, she brings candy to class, which makes it easier to wake up for early class.
I coached at Nike Tennis Camps at Stanford University
You’re majoring in exercise science because…
I’m actually majoring in elementary education because I figured out very fast after taking intro to cells that science classes are not for me, and what is better than reading children’s books for a required class.
What you’re most excited about this season
I’m really excited to see how much our team has improved and how the team chemistry will change since we do have a larger team than we did last year.
Favorite part of the Olympics
I love watching the Olympics but my other than the opening ceremonies I love to watch the diving and gymnastics.
Artist you’d pick to see in concert
Carrie Underwood for sure! I love country music and she is stunning!!
What you like best about Central tennis
Central tennis is about having fun, staying fit, and building as a team. It is cool that we have such good team chemistry because there are a variety of different personalities on the team!
Favorite part of preseason
The best part of preseason is getting to know all the new girls and seeing how much everyone has improved over the offseason.
Reality show you’d dominate if you got the chance
I think if I got a chance to be on a reality show I would choose the game show Wipeout because either you finish the fun obstacle course they set up and people are impressed or you have a great wipeout that makes people laugh…seems like a win-win situation.
Place you would most like to visit
I would love to visit both Greece and Australia.
What you bought with your first paycheck
My first paycheck actually went to paying for a new bumper for my parents car because I got in a car accident and that’s the reason I had to get a job.
Person past or present you’d like to have lunch with
Ellen DeGeneres… I just think she is hilarious and I love the variety of people she connects with on her show.
Thing most people don’t know about Coach Tyler
Coach is into a lot of meditation, last year I remember that he had Jordan Langer and I meditate to have the radio show up at practice… he is a big jokester. Oh and his signature thing is high fives!!
Go to watch a match at Wimbledon
Play on both clay and grass tennis courts
