As a child, I loved tennis, inspired by the Williams sisters. At 11, I tried squash and excelled, winning my first tournament. I chose squash over tennis at 12, a decision I don’t regret.
As a junior, I won several tournaments, including the 2010 World Junior Championship in Germany on my 17th birthday, making me the only American ever to achieve this. At Harvard University, I majored in Social Anthropology and minored in Global Health & Health Policy. During my time there from 2011-2015, I maintained an undefeated record of 62-0 and held the #1 player position for Harvard. I secured four National Individual titles, becoming the second female in college squash history to achieve this feat, and also won three National Team titles. Additionally, I participated in several pro-tournaments as an Amateur player during my college years.
After graduation, I quickly rose to #10 in the world in the Professional Squash Association (PSA). I achieved remarkable success, including two Triple gold medals in the PanAmerican Games and reaching the finals at NYC’s Tournament of Champions at NYC’s iconic Grand Central Station, making me the first American-born player to reach the finals of a World Series Event. I reached a career-high ranking of #6 globally, becoming the highest-ranked American-born player in PSA history.
After a setback in December 2016 with a 30% partial tear in my right plantar fascia and a subsequent left Achilles rupture, I spent most of 2017 recovering. It took me 10 months to return to the Pro-tour, but since then, my ranking has been steadily improving.
I am a 6-time US Women’s National Champion and the No. 1 Player in the US. I’ve represented the United States world team multiple times, three in juniors and six in women’s categories. In October 2021, I became the first American born player to break into the Top 3 in the world rankings. Additionally, I led the US Team to a historic 2nd place finish at the 2022 Women’s World Team Championship.
I competed on the Professional world tour and also served at the same time, as the assistant MIT Men’s Squash coach from 2017-2020, contributing to their first National Championship win in the Summers Cup Division.
Off-court, I enjoy music, dancing, sports, outdoor exploration, and trying new food. I have a passion for sports marketing too. Fun facts about me: I played the French Horn for years, I sang the National Anthem at a Brooklyn Nets Game at Barclays Center, at a Boston Bruins game at T.D. Garden, at the Tournament of Champions in Grand Central as well as God Bless America during the seventh inning stretch at a Red Sox game in Fenway Park. I used to be a daredevil, enjoying adrenaline activities like bungee jumping, skydiving, shark cage diving, and fly boarding.
My motto in life is to stay true to myself and keep it 100% real, so welcome to my life!
