Born and raised in Houston, TX came out to California on a volleyball scholarship to Long Beach State. I think my parents knew right away that I would not return. Played at Long Beach 89-92 then joined the Indoor USA National Team from 93-95. Received a Silver Medal at both the Pan American Games and The Goodwill Games. Went on to play three years indoor in Europe. Came home with the thought of getting a "regular" job. Was playing at the YMCA in a co-ed league where I met some people that introduced me to some gals that played on the beach. The next thing you know I am playing in the CBVAs on the weekends and joined the AVP tour. The first year on the AVP there were 6 stops and I qualified for the main draw in the last one in Chicago. Sharman Mitchell and I got our first 13th. I haven't stopped since. In the winter of 2006 my husband took a new job opportunity in the Los Angeles area and I decided to play full time for a while. Although the 2007 season had some rough bumps with 6 partners over 16 tournaments, I also had my career high of a 3rd place with Barb Fontana in Chicago. ( I love Chicago) I look forward to the 2008 season with renewed spirit and desire to be a top 8 team.
