September 5, 2003 "I am that girl next door. People just wanna think that for me, people think, oh this girl, she's just out here to have fun, play the game. And I am, but I definitely have some tricks up my sleeve. As far as me out in the wild is concerned, I'm not a sissy, I'm kind of, you know, tough. I can deal with it. The quickest way to get me mad is to underestimate me, and people do that a lot because of my appearance. They don't think I can handle things, uh, sometimes I’m not even considered to do things, because of the way I look. And that really makes me mad." - CBS.com pre-game video profile

She is most proud of participating in the annual Polar Bear Plunge fundraiser where she runs into the freezing Atlantic Ocean every February to raise money for the Special Olympics. Her favorite sport is soccer. She has a pet dog named Reggie and a fish named Rosco. Her parents are her heroes as she feels they teach her how to be a better person.
