Why did you choose the University of Michigan?
ES: I chose Michigan because of its resources, the home away from home feel, and how welcoming they were. And of course their program has lots of success.
What is your favorite part about softball?
ES: The teammates you get to play with and the friendships you get to make. It’s a lot fun to play when you have a great bond with your team.
What will you miss most about high school sports?
ES: I’ll miss being able to play something other than softball because I love switching it up each season.
What do you plan to study?
ES: I’m planning on going into Michigan’s Kinesiology school and studying movement science. This will allow me to get my pre-physical therapy Bachelor’s degree. Then I plan to go to PT school and get my Master’s degree and hopefully become a physical therapist.
