Who is your go-to music artist?
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

What motivated you to pursue volleyball?
Three things:
-I love the game for what it is and how much fun it is.
-The experience of playing for my family and friends to be a part of it with me.
-How hard the challenge is and all the personal growth that comes out of it.

Who are your role models?
I have been lucky to have lots of great role models, and they all have in common that they worked hard to be the best they could at what they did, but in the end always put other people ahead of themselves.
