Academic Interests: First became seriously interested in Spanish after a high school trip to Guatemala and decided to choose it as a major after reading Julio Cort├ízar’s "La noche boca arriba".

Life before Whitman: Born in Buffalo, NY with a bagel and sponge candy in hand. Having grown up in Seattle and with both her parents each earning 3 degrees from Oregon State where Charlotte went to tennis camp every summer, she opted instead for Whitman. As a 4 year varsity letter winner at the Bush school, Charlotte was a three time team league champion and was the Emerald City league and district doubles champion with her doubles partner before falling the the State 1A/B doubles finals.

Life as a Whittie: Always a solid force in doubles, Charlotte has contributed in singles as well with some notable non-conference wins playing in the 7 and 8 spots against Claremont and Chapman. A wonderful ambassador for Whitman tennis, this dual language, multifaceted, versatile player is a huge asset on and off the court. Her heart is as big as her huge serve and if there is a chance to be there for her friends and team, you'll find Squeaks.
