Prior to that, Fitzgerald was a three-time Under Armour High School All-American (2010-12).
Coming from a family of collegiate athletes, it was no surprise sports were a part of Fitzgerald's life from a young age. Both of her parents were student-athletes at the University of Iowa in the 1980's. She is one of four siblings that went on to play college sports at the Division I level.
Fitzgerald graduated from the University of Florida in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in the School of Telecommunications.
