Billiards

                      

   

What has been your career highlight so far?

Winning the Empress Cup Championship in Incheon, Korea when I was 6 months pregnant. I'm also proud to say that I won my very first ESPN televised match against the #1 ranked player in the world..

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring athlete?

If you're trying to be a pro athlete, you have to remember that when you are laying around playing video games or watching TV, someone else is out there doing practice drills and getting better. You have to out work 99% of the competition to get to the top.

 

What do you like most about billiards?

That ever rack is a different puzzle that you have to solve.

 

Why billiards?

I started playing at a late age, and pro billiards is one of the few sports that doesn't really have an age limit.

 

What does a typical day look like for you?

Take my 4 year old son to school, practice all day, hang out with the family in the evening.

 

What was your favorite subject in schools?

Math. I never had to study. It just made sense..

 

What is your favorite quote and why?

It's never too late to be what you might have been. I really love that one because everyone told me I started too late to go pro.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

My grandmother and my aunt.  They were strong, independent women before it was ok to be strong independent women.

 

What is on your ipod?

Radiohead, Zakk Wylde, Pink Floyd, Tupac, and Biggie are my favorites, but I have a lot of different stuff.  Just no pop music.
