Hey Sky Fans!

It is hard to imagine that this time a year ago I was finishing my career at Boston College, preparing for the draft. Having spent most of my life living in Massachusetts I had never lived very far from home. Since then I have lived and played in three different cities and I am grateful one of them has been Chicago!

This year has been one of tremendous growth. I have learned from my teammates overseas while playing against exceptional players, including Chicago Sky team mates. It has been a joy to meet people from all over the world and get to know other players from the WNBA a little better. Basketball continues to be so exciting!

Off the court I have also been blessed to explore different cultures. In the fall I lived in beautiful Mallorca where I learned to speak some Spanish and see the ocean everyday. Since Christmas I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in the abundance of history Istanbul has to offer. I have included some pictures of the breath taking sights.

After all this adventure I am looking forward to going home for a bit to prepare for an exciting season in Chicago! I am especially excited to meet my pen pals from Mrs. Andersonís class at RC Hill! They have been wonderful pen pals this year.

Sky Fans, I hope you all enjoy the spring and I will see you soon!
