• Played volleyball, basketball and track in high school; plays volleyball at SWOSU

• Favorite teams: Oklahoma City Thunder, SWOSU volleyball

• Favorite sports moment – personal: “Some of my favorite personal moments that stick out to me are our upset against Oklahoma Baptist University on our home court last season and when I set my career high in kills against Ouachita Baptist University.”

• Favorite sports moment – overall: “My favorite overall moment was my freshman year when we won the Conference Championship and rushed the floor when nobody expected us to come out and dominate. There has never been a better feeling, and that is the feeling we work for everyday to have again. Also, beating West Texas A&M on their home court my sophomore year was very satisfying.”

• What do you like most about SWOSU? “I love the family dynamic. We play for the love of the game and we play for each other. SWOSU is a community and everyone is involved and supports the athletes and wants to see us succeed.”

• Who do you most look up to? “One of my role models is Jordan Larson, a former Nebraska volleyball player, two times FIVB World Champion, and silver and bronze Olympic Medalist, along with many other accolades. Her fortitude, determination, and dedication to her craft to become one of the best women`s volleyball players in the world is incredibly inspiring.”

• Goals: “My main goal for this season is first and foremost to win the GAC Championship. I also aspire to set a new record for kills and blocks while also raising my hitting percentage. My last goal for my senior year is to leave a legacy of how a teammate should be, I will be a part of the long tradition of SWOSU athletes who push, encourage, and lead their teammates in the chase for our championship rings.”
