My goal for the 2012-13 season is:

to be a top rebounder in the UAA.


My favorite class at Brandeis is:

Professor Jerry Cohen’s conspiracy theory class because I learned a lot about how to analyze what I see in the media as well as how important it is to question your sources.


My favorite professional athlete is, and why:

Vince Wilfork, defensive tackle for the New England Patriots, because for a big boy, he can run.


My favorite thing to watch on DVD or my laptop is:



Career Highs: Points: 9, 11/15/11 at WPI. . . Rebounds: 11, 2/12/12 at Emory. . . Assists: 3, 11/15/11 at WPI. . . Blocks: 2, 1/20/12 at Wash. U. . . Steals: 2, 2/19/12 vs Chicago. . . Minutes: 33, 2/12/12 at Emory


AND MORE: Second season with the Judges as she transferred to Brandeis from Division II Stonehill… Started last 11 games of season… Career-high 18 points came in Feb. 25 season finale as Brandeis defeated NYU, 53-48… One rebound short of a double-double in that contest… Six of her career-high 11 caroms in a Feb. 12 loss at Emory were on the offensive glass… Psychology major with a Spanish minor.
