Hi! I’m a 2025 RHP/1B/OF, most recently with the Hanover Lady Hornets organization for 3 years. In August 2022, I joined TN Mojo 2025 Nelson, coached by Bruce Lewis.
I’m homeschooled (GPA: 4.0) and play spring high school ball for the Virginia Homeschool Varsity Lady Patriots team coached by Ken Adams. We play a competitive varsity schedule versus private and public high schools in Virginia.
Coach Adams’ homeschooled daughters played collegiately for Mississippi State and Longwood. Valerie Cagle of Clemson also played for the Virginia Homeschool team.
Since age 9, I’ve trained weekly with pitching instructor Jackie Magill at Rita Lynn Gilman’s pitching shop. I also have weekly hitting lessons with hitting instructor and UVA softball alum Tabby Dabney.
