About Me

Some of my most memorable volleyball moments are celebrating on the bench, going to team lunches, making TikToks, and watching Bobby gritty!!  And dancing all the time!  I love… love… LOVE…to dance!  My amazing mom inspires me. No matter how stressful she does her very best to stay positive and has taught me so many life lessons.  After college, I see myself getting my doctorates to start my path to becoming a sports psychologist.  I would like to thank the one and only Diana Paulino.  She has never ever missed a game of mine and that’s something not everyone can say. She’s supported me in everything and has continuously taught me to be not only a better teammate, but a better person overall. Thank you, mommy.
