PERSONAL: The oldest of Jutta and Stefan's two children… Most people do not know that she is a sucker for old cars, and has a sweet tooth… Megan Rapinoe, Hope Solo and Sisi (Brazilian National Team) are the best athletes she has competed against… Playing against FC Seattle Reign is her career sports highlight… Would play basketball if she could join another team at UC Davis… Her parents are her non-sports heroes… Plans to attend medical school and pursue a career as a sports or family doctor… Taking a cross-country road trip, visiting Italy, Ireland, and backpacking anywhere are the items on her bucket list… You can take away everything she owns except her grandma's turquoise and gold necklace, and her infinity heart necklace she wears every day… Chose UC Davis because the program was on the rise, she appreciates the coaching staff's philosophy and is excited to contribute to the program.
