How long have you been playing paintball and how did you find it? 

10+ my sister and law wanted to try it. But I was the one that got hooked 

What did you learn about yourself at the Paintball Combine? 

Being a team player isn't always the best thing for me. 

 

Who is your biggest inspiration and why? 

My mother. We lost my dad when I was 18 to cancer. She managed to put my sister's through catholic school and college. She gave up everything for us. She never remarried because she believed that bringing another man to the house was a bad example for us. She now supports all my crazy ideas still 

 

What made you want to play for Team USA? 

Want to win for the country that gave me so much. 

 

Favorite personal paintball moment: 

Winning events with my hubs, playing and winning with my kids in Panama. Winning the first international women's championship. 

 

What's on your mind the morning of an event or in the start box? 

Winning with my teammates

 

If you could play alongside any player in the game who would it be?

I guess it would have to be ollie lang 

 

What is your biggest goal in your paintball career? 

Podium with an all female team
