I graduated early from high school and moved to California to pursue my beach volleyball career. At 17 years old, I started my collegiate career at Pepperdine. While at Pepperdine, I earned 2018 WCC Player of the Year, 2017 National Championship All-Tournament Team, 2017 National Champion Runner up, and a two-time All-American and All-Academic honors.
My collegiate career set me up for a strong first professional year on the AVP, NORCECA and FIVB tours. In that year, I earned back to back gold medals for the USA on the NORCECA tour, a silver medal on the FIVB World Tour and several quarter final appearances on the AVP.
Hi / Hallo / 你好 / Hola
I grew up in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. It was in my side yard where my love for volleyball started. After watching the Olympics as a kid, I picked up a volleyball and haven't let go since.
Other than volleyball, my beach related activities don't stop there. I come from a family of above average surfers, lifegaurds and musicians (artists too but I didn't get those genes). All which I love to do!
When I am not training, you can find me either in the water surfing, in the mountains snowboarding, traveling anywhere, playing the ukulele or trying to learn a new language!
"It Can Be Done"
My Father's favorite quote that was repeatedly ingrained into me through this whole journey. This never meant it was easy and I've hit roadblocks in every step I've taken towards my beach volleyball goals, but if I never give up then I know "it can be done!"
Along with Graduating Pepperdine with a Degree in Business Administration, I was recognized on the Dean's List three times for semesters with a 3.98, 4.0 and 4.0 my junior and senior year!
