SISU October Player of the Month: Anna "Tim" Timmis

Updated: Feb 13, 2020

She may be small, but she's mighty!💪 Now well into her 3rd semester on the team, Tim has proven her place on this team as one of our best wings. She's always putting in 110% into her tackles and putting the pedal to the metal when sprinting down the field. She's one of the the hardest workers out there and a comedic genius! So it's time we learned more about Anna "Tim" Timmis!

Anna "Tim" Timmis




Bloomfield Hills, MI


Environmental Engineering with a minor in Energy Science and Policy

How long have you been playing?

3 semesters

Why rugby?

I ran track and cross country in high school and missed the fun of being on a team, but I wanted to try a new sport. I'd heard good things about rugby, so I went to my first practice just to check it out, and I immediately fell in love with the sport and the culture surrounding it. Joining the team has been one of the best decisions I've made in my time at Michigan - I've learned a lot, met some of my best friends, and grown as an athlete and a person.

In 5 years, what do you see yourself doing?

Hopefully either working as an engineer for the EPA or attending law school. (& still playing rugby!)

Favorite place in Ann Arbor? 

The fountain by the Dude on North Campus - when it's nice out, it's a gorgeous place to study.

Favorite memory at Michigan so far? 

My favorite memory is probably the drive down to Nash Bash in Vicky's car last semester - we drove down this scary-looking back road while blasting Hannah Montana songs and singing along at the top of our lungs.

Who is your biggest inspiration and why? 

My mom - she works hard at everything she does and cares deeply about her family, friends, and patients.

If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be? 

Raspberry sorbet

Favorite quote?

"Autobots, roll out. -Transformers" - Bria Donnell

Favorite food or guilty pleasure?

Bopping to One Direction

Best class you've ever taken at Michigan?

ENVIRON475 (Environmental Law) with Noah Hall - it made me realize that I want to work in environmental law and policy, and it was really eye-opening to hear from Prof. Hall about his experiences working with the government and leading the prosecution for the Flint water crisis.

Any hidden talents?

I can peel a clementine in one piece in like 3 seconds (this took years of practice)

Brunch or linner?


Favorite condiment?

Barbecue sauce (as a sidenote, mustard should be illegal)
