Why do you give to Springfield College athletics?
“I have always been taught to share my gifts and blessings with others. I was given the gift of fortitude and athletic success, and blessed with the opportunity to be a student-athlete at Springfield College. That is why I give to Springfield Athletics, because sharing gifts and blessings with other student athletes is important to me.”

How did being involved with Springfield College Athletics impact your student experience and your life now as an alumna?
“Being a student-athlete at Springfield College was a major part of my student experience. After schoolwork, it was where I devoted most of my time. Lacrosse kept me busy, focused, and excited. I can’t imagine going through college not being a part of the women’s lacrosse program.
“As an alum, everything I learned on and off the field plays a role in my life and I hope that I can share those lessons with others. It has been pretty cool to see how many Springfield College alumni are out there giving back. There aren’t too many days that go by that I am not thankful that I am a Springfield College alum.”
