She also spent time traveling with UConn athletic teams as a student athletic trainer and volunteered as an emergency medical technician for three years. She enjoys rock climbing, backpacking, snowboarding, and any and all things outdoors! This past summer, she thru-hiked the Long Trail in Vermont.
