What are your favorite hobbies away from volleyball?

What is your favorite memory of JMU volleyball?
I don’t know, it’s hard to pick. Any time I get the chance to play volleyball, I feel like I always create more and more memories with my teammates. I love playing with them and just having a fun time.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
When you play, don’t think about it. Do you ever think when you’re riding a bike, how to ride it? No, you just ride. You don’t think about it, you just do it. That’s what you got to do on the court with volleyball, just play. Whatever comes natural. -- Wei-Wu-Wei.

What is one thing everyone at JMU should do before graduating?
Make sure that they find whatever it is that will make them happy for the rest of their lives. Whether it’s a certain job, meeting someone special, playing a certain sport, etc. Live everyday to the fullest.

If not volleyball, what other sport would you want to play at JMU?
Nothing compares to volleyball for me so I can’t decide that.

LeBron James, Misty May-Treanor, and David Beckham
