"I am excited and highly motivated by this opportunity to join the MCC Scots’ Athletics family and to begin a new venture and team-building process. Everyone that I have met thus far at MCC has been warm, welcoming and supportive. I ‘m a strong believer that everything doing worthwhile is built with enthusiasm and hard work. I will bring these tenets to the women’s basketball program and have teams that will represent the college
with class, a strong work ethic, competitive fire on the court and a strong commitment to academic success in the classroom.”
