I was born with Badger blood in my veins. It runs through me physically, mentally and emotionally. It’s who I am. It’s who I’ll always be. It’s something that makes me very proud.

Being a student-athlete at Wisconsin is a tradition in my family. My uncle, Kelly Meuer, played men’s soccer. My father, Rob, played baseball and men’s hockey. My uncle, Jeff, and cousin, Keegan Meuer, played men’s hockey. My cousins, Molly, Katy and McKenna Meuer all played women’s soccer.

One of our biggest supporters is our grandfather, Dr. Connie Andringa, a UW graduate and pediatrician whose work with the men’s hockey program, USA Hockey and high schools in the area earned him a place in the Madison Sports Hall of Fame.
