Quote:
"I chose Emory because it presents a best-of-both-worlds opportunity for me.  I will to continue to play the sport that I love while pursuing my academic and research pursuits at one of the finest universities in the country.  I have been told that I had to choose between athletics and what I hope to do academically in the past and I am excited and grateful for the ability to do both.  I am also extremely excited to be a part of such a positive environment on an accomplished volleyball team."
