What is your single biggest bowling accomplishment and why?
Finishing 7th at the USBC Queens Tournament is my greatest bowling accomplishment to date. After the first round of match play, I was knocked into the losers' bracket. Getting knocked into the losers' bracket and still making it that close to the stepladder finals showed me that I can make it out there one day. I was in a slump going into this tournament and a little worse mentally as anyone would be while being in a slump. The Queens Tournament showed me a lot about my mental game. So this was not only a great achievement as in where I finished but a huge booster shot for how I felt about my bowling and future career at the time.
What would you like most to accomplish in your bowling career and why?
The thing I want to accomplish the most in my bowling career is that someday I would like to be exempt on the PBA tour and be the first woman to win a title against the men. This is something I have always wanted to do since I first started bowling at the age of 12.
What has helped you the most in getting to the level you are at as a bowler?
I don't know where I would have been without my father's support and faith in me. He is the only person in the world who has experienced everything that I go through in bowling. He has been there with me through it all, the slumps, the successes, and the practice sessions (4-6 hours a day). Without my father I would be nowhere in this sport. Having him by my side throughout everything makes all the successes that I have had and hopefully will have mean so much more to me. My mom has also been extremely supportive throughout the whole process and dealing with me and my dad in a tournament environment can't be easy by any means. My parents along with all the coaching I've received from Rich Esposito, Kegel Training Center, and my own work ethic would be the main things that have helped me achieve what I have.
