If you weren’t playing professional volleyball, what would your job be?
I’d be working in the digital marketing industry.

Off-Season: Does it actually exist or is it just a myth?
I use my off-season time to travel as much as I can.

What is your favorite event location?
Huntington Beach is number one because it’s where I grew up playing, but Seattle is great too, beautiful location.
