A member of the Order of the Gown, she finished her career with the Tigers playing in 71 matches, assisting on 10 goals and totaling 20 points.

On campus, she is a member of the Theta Pi Sorority, a tutor with the Writing Center, a mentor with FEED (Full Embodiment: An Empowering Dialogue), a member of the Club Crew team and is the Co-Director and Tour Guide with the Office of Admissions.
