Did you play volleyball in college? Yes, I played indoor for four years.
How long have you been playing beach? My family has been playing beach in leagues for as long as I can remember, but I hadn’t started playing in tournaments until about 2014.
Why is beach volleyball your sport of choice? It just clicked. Growing up I tried many different sports (as most do) but I never enjoyed any other sport as much as I enjoy playing volleyball. So far my love for this sport hasn’t faded, and I hope it never does! Volleyball has become more than a game for me, it’s my life! It has brought me some of my closest friends and best experiences. I am very grateful!
Favorite career moment so far in beach volleyball? The 2015 Fudpuckers womens doubles tournament. My partner and I lost in the finals, but the atmosphere was unlike any other tournament I’d ever played in! Plus the tournament took place on Okaloosa Beach in Destin, Florida! It’s so pretty there!
Favorite pro player? Why? My favorite pro player is Kerri Walsh-Jennings. Not only is she one of the best athletes around the world, but she is also a positive role model for many people, including me.
What other tours have you played on? AVPNext, EVP, and Volley America
Next beach volleyball goal you have set for yourself? My main goal is to continue to play and grow as an athlete for as long as I love the game.I’d also like to qualify for a main draw in either an AVP or NVL event
