About Me

I’m inspired by my teammates, it’s inspiring to see how hard they work in practice and during games. They also motivate me to be a better person and player with their energy and encouragement.  My favorite colors are blue and purple.  Something about me that most people don’t know is I danced for 10 years and player soccer for 8 years.  Winning a Bid to Nationals and beating the top ranked Dakine 18s team are some of my most memorable volleyball moments.  In 5 years I see myself in college getting my masters.  I want to thank my parents, teammates, & coaches at PSVBA for their support in my school/club volleyball career!

About Me

Some of my favorite volleyball moments are making Varsity all 4 years, being MVP & First Team All-League, and beating the 3rd rank team in the nation in my U16 club year!  I want to remind young players to always try your best no matter what, learn to love the process, not the results. Always have fun because club volleyball doesn’t last forever.  I’m so inspired by my mom because no matter what happens to her, she always treats others with love, and she is the most selfless person and will never think of herself first.  In 5 years, I see myself working as a high school athletic trainer or playing professional volleyball.  Thank to my husband Ruvim because he was always there for me pushing me to do my best even when I felt discouraged. I also want to thank my athletic trainer Mr. Geise, he helped me a ton with my knee, but also held me accountable for getting things done and pushing me to my full potential as a student and player.

My Favorites:

Inspirational Quote: “attitude is everything” – Heather Sugg

Motivational Song: Determinate – from the movie lemonade mouth

Favorite Color: forest green

I’m inspired by My mom. She inspires me the most, because she fought so hard after being diagnosed. She never let her attitude or how hard it was get in the way of how she lived her life. She always taught me that being yourself and fighting for what you believe in is the best way to “survive” life.

Something about me that most people don’t know about me I would say is my humor.  Not many people know my sense of humor because it takes me a little bit to open up to people. Also outside of volleyball and school i am very adventurous and love the outdoors.

In five (5) years I see myself graduating college, and starting my new life of being an athletic trainer.

Some advice I’d like to give younger players is Don’t be afraid to make a mistake, it’s okay! there is not one person who doesn’t make a mistake. Also, just be your self, have fun with the sport. You can’t enjoy a sport if you don’t make it fun.

I would thank Coach Kyla and Katlyn, my dad and Sydney Locke. They all helped me get through so much, and always made sure that i was doing okay. They were definitely a big part of why i was able to continue to love the sport and want to further my career.

I’m inspired by my parents because when I think I’m ready to give up I look at how hard they’re working even when they want to give up and it inspires me to push harder for them!

Something most people don’t know about me is…I’m very humble and passionate about the things that I love!

In five (5) years I see myself…hopefully starting my first book and if not, I should at least have an idea of what I want to write about

Some advice I’d give to younger players is …don’t let people tell you that you can’t play a certain position even if it’s a coach or your parents, if you want to play that position train hard and don’t give up. give your heart to what you’re most passionate about

I’d like to thank my parents and my coaches but overall, I’d like to give praise and thanks to God, I wouldn’t have my talent without him, and he has given me this opportunity to further my athletic and academic career!

Inspirational Quote:  It matters not what you’ve done, but what you do with what you’ve done for others (Noah Centineo)

  • Motivational or Inspirational Song:  Nobody’s Perfect (Hannah Montana)
  • Color:  Purple

I’m inspired by my grandma for the love and compassion she has for everyone, and how selfless she is!

Something about me that most people don’t know is that I can “almost” do the splits.

In 5 years I see myself “happy” and still in school (maybe orthodontics) thriving.

I’d like younger players to put in the work cause others around you are always getting better too and don’t cheat yourself in practice because in the end you’re hurting yourself and your team

Thank you Mom, Dad, Kiran and all my coaches who have ever worked with me!

  • Favorite color: Blue

I’m inspired by my mom because she is dedicated and overflows with compassion and patience with everyone she works with or is around. She pushes me to be the best version of myself and reminds me daily of what I need to be grounded in. She pushes me to pursue my faith daily and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her. I love you mom!

Something most people don’t know about me is I really love to make art, especially pottery and painting, but I don’t do it very often because I don’t have a lot of time. When I do have time though, it brings me a lot of joy and peace.

In five (5) years I see myself working in a hospital as a labor and delivery nurse, while working to get my master’s degree as a nurse practitioner. I hope to have my own apartment and to have a dog, specifically a golden retriever 🙂

My advice to any younger player is to work to be the best person and have the best attitude that you can in whatever role you are placed in. Whether it is on the court or on the bench, have a great attitude, encourage your teammates, and respect your coaches. One of the best things about volleyball is your teammates, so walk into the gym every day with the mindset that you are going to be the best teammate. You can only control what you can control, and being a good teammate is one of those things, so make a positive impact and create a good culture. This will get you more respect from your teammates and coaches then being the “star athlete.” Your coaches will notice a player being positive and impactful over one that is not, so be the noticeable one.

I want to first thank my parents. They have invested so much time and money into my volleyball career and experience, so I couldn’t have done it without them. They have loved and supported me through this journey that started 6 years ago, and they continue to love and support everything I am doing as a move onto the next stage of my career and life in college. I want to thank all of my coaches that I have had because everyone has grown me in such different areas whether it be volleyball or life skills. I want to specifically thank Coach Kasey Yost, who I started my volleyball journey with, because he instilled in me my passion and love for the sport and I wouldn’t be pursuing college ball without his influence on me. Also, I want to specifically thank Coach Bobby and Jill for investing in me and coaching me the past 3 years at ER and also my last year at Puget Sound. I have learned so much from them, and I wouldn’t be pursuing my dreams of college volleyball without their support and help along the way. Lastly, I want to thank all of my teammates throughout my whole career. The relationships I have and everyone I have met along the way have taught me so much. I am forever grateful for all of the memories that have come from playing over my career, and specifically this past season at puget sound, with my teammates. I have had so much fun this season and I am going to miss everyone so much!
