Who has had the biggest influence on your basketball career?

It’s really hard one, I can’t choose one person. There have numerous people that have influential to me and played an important part in my career.

Who were the top female athletes you looked up to while growing up?

Lisa Leslie is someone that I always admired

Can you describe how it make you feel when a younger girl says she looks up to you as a role model?

It’s a great feeling to know that someone wants to be like you and looks up to and that what you do influences how they live their life.

The WNBA is well known for its work within the community. What kind of things have you done with fans to grow a relationship between them and the team and enhance the future of women's basketball?

I have done autographs sessions following our games and at community appearances, it gives me the chance to get to know them a little bit.
