Somewhere you have never been that you would most like to visit:

Something about yourself that few people know:
I've had the same roomate for four years, and she will one day be the President of Stanford

Most influential person in your life:
Besides my parents, my brother has shaped a lot of who I am.

If I won $1 million dollars, I would:
Go to Europe for a couple months and see all the sights that I've always heard about. Then I would go backpacking in the Alps.

I love playing with everyone on the team so I could go through the entire list with things that I admire about each person. I am most impressed with Lindsey Stice. She has been fighting through her injury for so long, and yet despite the circumstances is one of the most positive and upbeat people I've ever met.

Current of former Stanford athlete I most enjoy watching perform:
Nicole Powell, because she is an amazing athlete and plays the game the way it's supposed to be played- with tons of intensity and emotion.

one of those that made a difference in building the program, and someone who my teammates and coaches were glad to have worked with.
