My Book

Play Like A Girl Photo Book

I am beyond excited to announce that Play Like A Girl has been published!!!!!!

I want to thank everyone who supported me and believed in this project! My goal is, and always has been, to help inspire girls to try anything and know that they are just as good as their male counter parts. My hope in publishing this photo series is that this message can reach girls throughout my community and beyond! The book is currently available for purchase in paperback and hardcover online at Amazon, Barnes&Noble and other online vendors. Available to purchase in person at East Bay stores listed below.

Book Launch at Lemon Gift Shop

In collaboration with Lemon, I hosted launch party to celebrate the release of the book. The focus of the event was the subjects of PLAY LIKE A GIRL, the athletes. More than 15 subjects were able to attend the event, where they were treated to a red carpet photo op, snacks and refreshments and the opportunity to mingle with other girls from the book and autograph their page in the book. 

All author royalties made during the event were donated to The Women's Sports Foundation to help support girls involvement in sports.
