While at Lemoyne College,  she did a senior thesis on baseball analytics using Principle Component Analysis (PCA) to compare and group players using various offensive styles of play.  With this knowledge she will be working with the club in Game Day Operations as well as baseball scoring, analytics and overall statistics concerning the 2020 season.
