Quiet The Crowd

April 5, 2007

1. What attracted you to the University of Iowa? When I came on my visit I noticed that the team had great chemistry. The girls all got along so well and had great ambitions. That was one of the things that I was really impressed by. I also liked the direction the team was headed in, the goals that they wanted to achieve and what Coach Carney was working towards.

2. What is your worst fear? Dogs! I have been absolutely terrified of dogs since I was about four years old and got chased by a VERY large dog while I was riding my bike.

3. If you were given three wishes, what would you wish for? To be happy, there is no point in living life if you don’t enjoy it. To rid the world of disease. Everyone deserves to live a full and healthy life. To not be afraid to take chances.

4. What is the best part about being a student-athlete at Iowa? The toughest part? The best part of being a student-athlete at Iowa is the opportunity to do something I love with people that have become my closest friends. The toughest part is trying to stay caught up in school while traveling.

5. What is your biggest pet peeve? I really have two; people that are late and people that lie. I see no reason for either!

6. What is something that you can’t imagine life without? My family! They have been there for me through everything you can imagine and they are the best. I don’t know what I would do without their love and support.

7. What is in your refrigerator if we open it up right now? Water, propel, turkey, cheese, eggs and tons of food my mom sends back to school with me. And slice and bake Easter cookies 😉

8. Where is the best place to find you on campus? I wish I could say the library, but that’s definitely not true! I guess I would say Papajohn because that’s where most of my classes are.

9. What was your coolest Halloween costume? When I was really young I dressed up as Miss Piggy from the Muppets.

10. What has had the greatest impact on your athletic career? My big brother, Kyle. When I was little I wanted to be just like him, I followed him everywhere. And that included the golf course because that was where he always was. I don’t think I’ve ever admitted this to him, but it was because of him I learned at a young age that if I wanted something I had to be the one to work for it, nothing was going to be handed to me. He has always pushed me to be my best, been my biggest supporter and the best competition I had growing up (and still my best competition at the CCC!).
