I began my athletic journey as a swimmer at age 5. I was good, but not great....and found out early that being great required hard work, dedication, and above all commitment. Year after year I qualified for the State Team in individual Butterfly and Freestyle events, but enjoyed relays the most. Something about being a part of 'the team' was much more rewarding than any other part of the sport for me.
Once I made the volleyball team in middle school I knew I had found my sport. I finished middle school as Team Captain and Setter, and now play for my high school and club team. My high school team needed a Defensive Specialist, so that’s what I became! For the last 2 years I have worked to develop my skills as a DS and a student-athlete managing to do both at an elevated level. I have learned to balance family, faith, school and sport and understand that all are equally important to my success in life.
When I'm not in school or on the volleyball court, I enjoy spending time traveling, watching movies, listening to music and eating spaghetti!!
