Washington State University: Played club volleyball at Washington State…named First Team All-Evergreen Region libero.

Bishop Blanchet High School: Played three years of varsity volleyball for the Braves, captaining the squad in 2013 and 2014…two-time Second Team All-League Libero…317 digs and 54 aces in 73 sets as a senior in 2014…team MVP in 2013…earned Coaches Award in 2012 and 2014.

Personal: Daughter of Karri and Steve…has five siblings: an older sister, a twin sister, a younger brother, and two step-sisters…majoring in sport management and wants to be a sports agent…chose Gonzaga because, “After spending a year at WSU, I knew I didn’t choose the right school. I needed to be playing volleyball, and at a higher level than I was. I needed to be pushed harder academically so I can succeed in my field in the future. Having the opportunity to attend Gonzaga is something I would have never dreamed of.”
