Volleyball has been an influential part of my life since I was 12. At 18, I got a full ride scholarship and came from Bosnia to the US to attend Lyon College in Batesville, AR. From there, I received a graduate assistantship and completed my masters in Human Resources from East Central University in Ada, OK. Upon completion of my masters, I moved to Dallas, TX in 2010 where I met my husband through playing volleyball. We play together and compete in coed beach volleyball tournaments. We have a two year old daughter named Sasha and two pups Bob and Jack. Volleyball has shaped who I am both personally and professionally, and I embrace the opportunity to pass along my enthusiasm for the sport.
