How old were you when you started playing volleyball?
I started playing volleyball at the age of 11.

Who or what inspired you to start playing volleyball?
All of my friends were playing volleyball so I thought I would give it a try and fell in love with it.

How did you get into volleyball?
Here at Platteville, I didn’t join until late in the semester but had met some people on the team through open gym, and they told me to come play.

What is your advice for incoming freshman that want to get involved in campus club sports?
If you are interested in joining any kind of club sport, just look it up on PioneerLink even if you are unsure if there is a team. Chances are it exists. I missed a whole semester of fun and meeting great people because I just didn’t look.
