Time to introduce yourself to fans- how would you describe yourself?
I am a fun outgoing person, I like to have fun and hang out with my friends. I am a very social person and can hold a conversation with just about anyone.

What were your expectations on draft day and how did it feel to be selected by Atlanta?
I was very nervous on draft day and when the Atlanta Dream selected me I was overjoyed with happiness.

What do you think you can add to this team?
I am a 3 point shooter, so I am hoping to add some perimeter shooting to the Dream.

Have you ever spent any time in Atlanta? What are you looking forward to about playing here?
I have never been outside of the airport in Atlanta :-) but the Atlanta airport is a very busy place so I can only imagine what the city is like! I am extremely excited to play in Atlanta and have the opportunity to be a part of their program.

Training camp opens May 15. What is a typical day like for you as you get ready to transition to the pros?
As I anticipate my arrival in Atlanta, I am both nervous and excited. I have been getting prepared each day by shooting and lifting and trying to get my body into shape and ready for training camp May 15th.

What are some of your interests off the court?
When I am not on the court I like to hang-out with my friends and family. I enjoy going to the movies or just relaxing at home. I love to be outdoors (when the weather is nice- it is still pretty cold in Iowa!)
