    Coach Moynihan: "Michelle is a forward/attacking midfielder that is a real handful for opposing defenses. She has great quickness with the ball and a wonderful turn to get free in the box. She can score in multiple ways, off the dribble, from distance, getting behind the defense, and from service, so she is a legitimate well-rounded threat. With a background in high-level hockey as well, Michelle has a wonderful understanding of combination play and movement. She is scrappy and resilient and plays with a big presence."
