Born and raised in Austin, Texas, I have been playing volleyball for 10 years now. I have had the unique experience as an NCAA Division I and II volleyball player with several accomplishments at both levels. I played in my first professional beach volleyball event at age 17. Since then I have had multiple Open tournament wins in the state of Texas. This 2012 season is another stepping stone in my ultimate life goal as an athlete, the 2016 Olympics. Below is a list of accomplishments from the last few years.

In my spare time I love being a native Austinite and everything that comes with it: Runs along the Town Lake Trail, listening to live music in all forms at all venues, posting up for hours at one of many local coffee shops, riding my bike “Bonnie” through the streets of downtown, all activities in the SOCO area, UT football games, and boating on the lake.
