What do you like most about club volleyball?
I enjoy club volleyball because it has taught me how to combine my athletism with the technical skills of the game on the court and sportsmanship off the court. I enjoy the large spectrum of competition club volleyball has exposed me to competing against the varied teams in our league in Canada and the US. Lastly I value the commaderie I have developed with my fellow team mates and the girls from other teams that we have competed against over the years.
What is your favourite song to listen to before a game?
My favourite song to listen to before a game would be Oui, Rolex or Hear You Me. I like to listen to slower songs before games to calm myself down.
Who is your favourite athlete or celebrity, and why?
My favourite athlete is Heather Bansley. I enjoy watching her play on the world stage and I hope to one day play at the National level, as she does representing our country.
If you could have any career in the world, other than a professional volleyball player, what would it be?
If I could pursue any career, I would choose to go into Sports Therapy to help athletes recover from injuries. The recovery process and what athletes are going through, are a critical step in preparing for the next competition.
