Fondest childhood memory: When I was younger about the age of 7, I would go with my dad and watch him play. I wanted to play so bad but my parents were a little nervous about me playing. Until the day I went to Diamond Billiards to watch my dad play and I seen Thomas Dorsey giving this little girl lessons so I went to my mom and asked if I could get lessons too. She went and talked to Thomas Dorsey and set everything up for me to get started. My dad told my grandpa who is also an avid player and he made me my 1st stick it was 44 in. and that’s how I started to learn the game and play. It was one of the happiest days of my pool journey.
Goals (personal and/or career): I want to one day become a pro and play in the Mosconi Cup.
