Favorite food: Noodles with olive oil, pepper, a bit of sea salt, and Parmesan cheese.

What her coaches say about her: “Georgia has been in our club program for several years now and I have gotten to know her very well over the past few seasons.  On the field Georgia is an speedy, dynamic, and feisty player who definitely takes her competition on by surprise.  She has great stick work and moves the ball very well when she plays.  Off the field Georgia never fails to put a smile on my face.  She is a ball of energy with a great sense of humor and love for life.  I am looking forward to seeing her rock it this fall season!” -Julie Janes, Aim Coach
