4. Do you still keep in contact with your former teammates? Yes! I keep in touch with many former Tulane teammates from volleyball and other sports.

5. What advice would you give to the current student athletes? The hard work, dedication, and mental strength you are learning and practicing now will pay off long after your playing days are over. I rely on all those attributes now that I am in the business world.

6. Do you still play your sport? Unfortunately no - but definitely keep in shape.

7. Which student athlete, past or present, would you have liked to have had on your team? And Why? Pam Buff Adamczyk - she was my roommate and a great Tulane golfer! She would've made a great defensive specialist.

8. Who is your favorite all time Tulane student athlete? Definitely Mark Tyler (Football). We met back up at Homecoming last fall when his Tulane football team was getting inducted into the Hall of Fame! Been dating ever since...

9. Who was the toughest opponent you faced? Stanford. I loved taking a game from them at Fogleman Arena. Some of those girls went on to the Olympics a few years later.

10. What is your fondest memory of Tulane / New Orleans? The entire experience - I was so blessed to have lived in New Orleans for 4 years, play on a fun team, and graduate from an amazing school. Those are 4 years I will always cherish - they shaped who I am today!
