What do you like most about BA?
What I like most about BA is our approach to learning on and off of the ice.

Why is it important to have solid academics in addition to good hockey training?
It is crucial to have solid academics and good hockey training because it teaches you good habits and outside-of-the-box thinking, which helps in all aspects of life.

Which coach or teacher had the biggest impact on your life and why?
The person with the most significant impact on my life is my dad because he was my hockey coach every year. He taught me how to view life on and off the ice and why it was essential to be that person in both areas.

What is your favorite hockey memory?
Every year when we would go to the Mankato tournament during youth hockey. We always ate at the same place, had the best time with our team, and usually won the tournament.

What are your credentials and hockey experience?
I have been skating since I was three and played through high school. I played every position, but mostly center and defense.
