A biology major and honor roll student with aspirations of becoming a doctor, she took her own injury as an opportunity to learn more about the process of surgery and rehab firsthand. She started doing pre-operative rehab work, then underwent surgery to reconstruct her ACL. That surgery was performed by Dr. Scott Mair, a Sports Medicine surgeon at UK HealthCare Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine and the team physician for UK Basketball.
