About Me

My family inspires me the most because they always push me to my fullest extent and are my biggest supporters.  Something special about me that many people don’t know is that I’m graduating with my aa in pre nursing!  I see myself being a nurse and helping others around me! I also hope to be married and start a family of my own.  I would like to thank Bobby and Jill for supporting me throughout my high school volleyball career and through this past year of club. They always guided me on the right path and helped me regain the love for the game that I had lost. I would also like to thank my family for the constant support through the best years of my life!  My most memorable volleyball moments are going to Nationals and making new friendships that I’ll cherish forever!
