In Own Words:
Curling is a part of who I am. If it wasn't for curling I would not have met many of my friends, I wouldn't have been able to travel the world, and I wouldn't be the same person I am today. The previous six months of my life leading up to these championships have given me memories for a lifetime that I would never have had if it weren't for the sport of curling.

Curling Highlights:
2014 Olympic Winter Games, 2014 Olympic Trials, 2012 U.S. National Championships, 2013 U.S. National Championships, U.S. Junior National Championships (07, 08, 09, 10, 11)
