Why is beach volleyball your sport of choice? I have played volleyball my entire life and once I was introduced to Beach volleyball, I fell in love with the sport. The atmosphere of being able to play on the beach and the people I have met have been awesome. I have also felt the sport has been easier on my body and see myself playing the sport for a long time.

Favorite career moment so far in beach volleyball? Playing in the Final Four of NCAA beach volleyball National Championships in Gulf Shores, Alabama

Favorite pro player? Why? Kerri Walsh– She is a role model to women across the country. She presents herself on and off the court with such professionalism and
passion. Her passion and drive for the sport is an inspiration to all that play the game. Casey Patterson– He is a blast to watch. I love the energy and entertainment that he brings to the game. It is a spectator sport and he brings out the fun in the game.

Next beach volleyball goal you have set for yourself? Have a top 3 finish next Summer in the NVL.
