WHY YOU CAME TO ST. OLAF: My mother and brother went here, and I knew volleyball would be possible to continue at St. Olaf. I also loved the study abroad program and sense of community.

VOLLEYBALL HISTORY: I started playing in fourth grade and then played high school volleyball, but I never played for a club.

PRE-GAME RITUAL: My brother showed me a video called “How bad do you want it?” I listen to it every gameday because it reminds me of my brother.

RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOU: My nickname is Moose.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT AS AN OLE ATHLETE: The atmosphere in the gym during a close game with a big crowd. There is no feeling like it.

BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ATHLETICS: There is a bigger time commitment and the game is faster and more intense.

BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE RECIEVED: Trust your gut…it’s usually right.

GOALS FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON:Leave everything on the court on Friday because it is my last game as an Ole.
