I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I attended Beverly Hills High School, where I played 3 years varsity volleyball and 4 years varsity track and field. During my high school years, I played club volleyball at both SMBC and Culver. I continued my volleyball career at the University of Mary (Division II), in Bismarck, North Dakota, where I was originally recruited as a Middle Blocker. During the 4 years I played, I switched to Right Side Hitter. I graduated with a degree in Bachelors in Science with an athletic training major. During my years in college, I coached numerous camps and also coached a Club team in Bismarck, ND. Over the past three years, I have coached J.V. Volleyball at Culver City High School (Fall 2015; 10-0 League); coached 2 years at Culver Club (2015-16/Head Coach 13s and Asst. Coach/18s; 2016-17/Head Coach 13s). Currently, I am the Asst. Coach for LAVA Shack 13s. I also have experience in developing players through private lessons.
