Favorite sports experiences: Meeting athletes at Fan Fest, going to Astros games with friends, being my dad’s only sporty child so he was my coach a lot.
Sports played: I played soccer and volleyball all through the early years and dabbled a bit in gymnastics and ice-skating. I did some track and field too.
Family: My parents told me I could do anything I wanted. I think they may regret that now that I’ve decided what I want to do is radio. I have a very awesome and supportive family though.
