Meg started playing indoor volleyball at age 10 at Coast Volleyball Club and started beach volleyball two years later with Coach Derek Olson. At 15, she left indoor club to focus on beach at Wave Volleyball Club.

She’s a two-time All-American, 2021 PAC-12 Freshman of the Year, and won Pair of the Year with partner Tina Graudina. She qualified for her first AVP Main Draw in Huntington Beach in 2019 at age 16 with Delaynie Maple. Later that summer, the pair finished 5th at Hermosa Beach AVP.

Meg has a twin brother who plays baseball in college. She attributes at least some of her discipline and focus to her parents, who both served as military officers, her father a Marine Corps Harrier Jet Pilot, and her mother a Navy Clinical Psychologist who served in Iraq in a Marine Corps combat hospital. When not playing or working out, Meg enjoys attending daily mass when able, eating chicken and pasta, studying accounting, and listening to her favorite artists, either Taylor Swift or Social Distortion.
