Other information
She secured a quota spot for the 2016 Paralympic Games at the 2015 World Cup event in Fort Benning, GA, despite experiencing a number of disruptions in the previous 12 months, which included surgery on a neck problem and her father passing way. "I've had a rough year. Last October [2014] I had neck surgery, and in May [2015] I went home to be with my father since he was sick. My father passed away in July so most of my training was done in August and September. That was the hardest I've trained and probably the most I've ever gotten out of training. I just wish I could tell my dad, that's the only sad part. He had never been able to come to one of my matches because he was on dialysis. I found out at his funeral he was planning to come to this match and get dialysis here, so that was on my mind." (, 05 Nov 2015)
