Personal Highlights

I moved to Greenwich, CT at the age of 12 in 7th grade. I was born in London and moved to a small ski village in Switzerland at the age of 5 where I attended the local French speaking primary school until 7th grade. I speak French, English, German and Spanish. Before volleyball, I was a competitive and nationally ranked alpine ski racer in Switzerland as well as 2016 & 2017 Swiss Valais State champion in Karate - Kata and combat.

I now love volleyball, I love my school Greenwich Academy and specifically I love being a Setter. I chose to focus on Setting in 8th grade as I love the mental aspect of the position and being the quarterback and leader of my teams. I have experienced a lot of change - new schools, new languages, new countries - and it has made me adaptable and open and excited about new things.

The next step for me will be to play volleyball on a great team at an academic institution where I can pursue my passions of engineering, design, music and volleyball.
