My goal is to play college volleyball, and to study exercise and nutrition science. As much as I'd love to stay and play in my home state of South Dakota, I am willing to go anywhere in the country in order to play. My greatest strength is being a motivator for my teammates. I am always the one to fire them up, encourage them and cheer them on. I earned the Heart of the Game award two years in a row, not because I was the most skilled player on the team, but because I always give 100% and have a passion for volleyball. I attend early morning workouts every day, join winter and summer leagues, and am the first to arrive (and last to leave) at every practice. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get stronger physically and mentally, so that I can do my best in the sport that I love!
