Why UT Tyler?:
I chose to come to UT-Tyler because I loved the environment right away. The programs here are amazing. When I found out how great the Nursing Program is here I was instantly sold. I wanted to be put in the best position to succeed and UT-Tyler offered that for me. The Coaching staff were welcoming and encouraging. I knew I wanted to play Basketball and graduate from UT-Tyler the first day I toured and stepped on campus. 

Goals for 2016-17: I want us to work hard for each otherand that alone will take us far. We want rings.
