What's your favorite part about playing volleyball?
I love just playing with everyone and playing with the team, it's a lot of energy and it's just a lot of fun. I love being around people.

I really like Catch and Release

What's your favorite food?
Cereal

Any kind of cereal in particular?
No, I like switching it up. Just cereal in general.

Grey's Anatomy

If you couldn't play volleyball what sport would you play?
Softball.

What position?
Either shortstop or second base.

What attracted you to come to NMSU?
I love the small town feeling of the campus. You get to know everybody. And the fans are awesome.

What's something about yourself that most people don't know?
I'm three minutes younger than my twin sister Kelsi.

What's it like having your sister here with you this season as opposed to you two being rivals last season (Kelsi played for UNM last season)
Definitely different playing on the same team as opposed to having that rival mindset. It's a lot of fun. She brings a lot of energy to the court which I really like and we really need.

What do you take with you on the road to keep yourself entertained?
My iPod and a pillow.

What are you hobbies and do you have time to do them during the season?
I really love photography and I don't have a lot of time to go out and do that during the season. And I love taking my dog on walks.

What does being an Aggie mean to you?
It means being competitive, being a role model. Setting an example for the younger kids that come and watch you.
