My journey through volleyball began by chance. With some time to kill and a growing love for hoops, I followed my ears to what I thought was an open gym for basketball. Much to my surprise, it was a boys club volleyball practice. 11 years later I find my passion for the game growing. I look forward to sharing all the lessons that the game has taught and continues to teach me with the Boost family!
