I am devoted to volleyball. I am always asked to play other sports and have in the past, but I AM a volleyball player. I train 5-7 days per week and do strength and conditioning workouts. I recover with yoga, PT, stretching, and massages and prefer to spend my free time at private lessons, elite work-outs, and open gym scrimmages. I travel around the country to get elite training and to participate in collegiate-level camps and showcases. I have been playing Varsity since my freshman year on my 7A high school team, and I play national elite-level club volleyball. For the 2023 volleyball year, I have decided to play 16s again (I played up 2022 Club Season) but do so under the leadership and excellent technical training of husband-and-wife duo Mauricio Cunha and Manuella Steigleder who launched M2 Volleyball in the 2021-2022 club season.
My goal is to work hard and keep leveling up to play at the highest level possible! I am passionate about perfecting my level of play and enjoy learning from my coaches and teammates. Nothing get's me more pumped than a kill on an overpass, a perfect pass to the setter, a single block, serving an Ace, or showing that a tall girl can dig and pancake too!
I first touched a volleyball at the age of 9, and it has been my passion since. I know the challenges of balancing academics and sports. It's not easy with demands and other commitments, but I am learning valuable skills to continue my total growth as an athlete and a member of society.
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you''ll look back and realize they were the big things.
