Did you play volleyball in college? Yes

How long have you been playing beach? Competitively for 5 years.

Why is beach volleyball your sport of choice? I have played volleyball for most of my life. When I found beach volleyball, I instantly fell in love. It gives me the opportunity to travel around the county and meet new people. The atmosphere is something that is hard to explain. I have met so many amazing people through this sport and have made some of my best friends. 

Favorite career moment so far in beach volleyball? My favorite career moment would be winning the bid to the Manhattan Beach Open for the Midwest region in 2017 and playing in the MBO. It was an experience that is hard to put into words. 

Favorite Pro player? Why? April Ross- She is such a versatile player. Not only is she a force to be reckoned with on offense and back on defense, but she all so has a huge net presence if needed to be in a blocking position. She is an inspiration on and off the court and conducts herself with professionalism. She is a great role model that this sport is lucky to have.  I would love the chance to play against her, just so I could say that I did.  

What tours have you played on? AVP and NVL
