“I chose Vanderbilt because it has everything I could need and want in a school for my athletic, academic, and career goals. During the recruiting process, the team made me feel so welcome and seeing the team is truly like a family is so important to me. I am so excited to be a part of this team and to compete in, arguably, the toughest conference in the NCAA.”
