DURHAM, N.C. -- Recently, GoDuke.com sat down with senior Paula Heimbach  to learn more about the Palm, Pa., native.

GoDuke.com: Name your three favorite things about being a student-athlete at Duke.

Paula Heimbach: Definitely being a part of this team is great. Having a team to rely on and already having a sense of community here is really great. I think being a part of this athletic program is also special. I think it’s one of the best in the country. Combined with the academics, it’s at the top, and I think that’s invaluable. I think learning the valuable skills that you need in life is definitely a benefit of being here. Learning leadership and being able to communicate and work together as a team is really important once you move into the world after college.

GoDuke.com: What is your favorite competition-related memory?
PH: I think my favorite memory was beating Old Dominion on their home turf when they were undefeated because I think they thought they were going to run away with it and go undefeated that season and we took it right out from underneath them.

GoDuke.com: What is your favorite memory away from competition?
PH: I think all of the little moments like hanging out in the locker room. Just when we can be together as a team, some of those little moments are the best ones because you’re just hanging out as friends.

GoDuke.com: Name three pet peeves?
PH: Slow walkers, when people move my things and slow drivers.

GoDuke.com: Who are three people you’d like to have dinner with?
PH: I’d like to have dinner with any of my great grand-parents, because I never had a chance to meet them, and learning about my family’s history would be cool. I think dinner with the president would be cool. Also, dinner with any of the Phillies would be cool. I’m a big Phillies fan.

GoDuke.com: Name three things that motivate you to perform.
PH: My teammates, the desire to be successful as a team and my parents.
