Personal Statement

I am a 5'11 middle/opposite from West Des Moines, Iowa.  I have a 3.7 GPA and will graduate from Waukee High School in 2020. There are approximately 700 students in my graduating class. I was honored to begin playing for my high school varsity volleyball team as a sophomore where I had the most kills in a high school varsity match. I have played club ball at the national level for 7 years and currently play for Iowa Power Volleyball Alliance (IPVA) out of Des Moines, Iowa. I was privileged to play on the High Performance travel team for the state of Iowa in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, July, 2017.

I believe I have a lot to offer coaches and teammates. First, I work hard both on and off season to improve myself physically and mentally. Second, I do not take success for granted and am constantly looking to improve. In late summer 2018 I was diagnosed with a stress fracture of L5 vertebra after a few months of pain.  I had to take several months off to recover over my school season. This was a difficult time for me, but I kept going to practices, supporting my team and working on my health.  I am now fully recovered and have a new respect for the game and my love of volleyball. 

I am very determined.  No matter what is happening I try to bring energy to my team by cheering on teammates. My Freshman year in track I was granted the Newcomer of the Year award. I believe the success of a team is more important than the success of an individual player.  I make the adjustments my coaches ask me to make and will do what it takes to fill the need. One of my coaches once wrote the word "humble" on a small rock and gave it to me as a reminder of one of my positive qualities. In a college, I am looking to find a balance between the classroom and the court. I am very open minded in my college selection process, but I am most interested in a school where I can benefit the team from year one through graduation. I love volleyball, and sports in general. Being a college athlete has been a lifelong goal.
