The Augustana Vikings are proud of the athletes they bring on board every year. To help welcome the rookies joining the team in the coming year, we'll be profiling each of the players from various teams individually over the coming weeks and months. Each player will be asked the same set of questions to help Vikings fans get to know their incoming athletes. 

  1. What position do you play?

    I play in the middle and on the right side. 

  2. How long have you been playing your sport?

    I've been playing for six years; since Grade 7. 

  3. What helps you drive to succeed in your chosen sport? 

    The thought of hard work on and off the court. Will it pay off? Will we be rewarded with a championship?!
  4. What are some personal goals you hope to achieve during your time at Augustana?

    I hope to become a more versatile player on the court and to excel at my undergraduate degree and hopefully be accepted into the Physiotherapy program at Augustana.

    1. What program are you taking at Augustana and why?

      I'm taking a Bachelor of Phys Ed/Kinesiology. I aspire to be a Physiotherapist. I enjoy helping people and look forward to working with both athletes and the elderly.

    2. Why did you choose to attend Augustana?

      Academically, Augustana offers the undergrad and post graduate degree programs I'm looking for. Athletically, the Viking players and staff have made me feel welcome from the moment I met them! I am so excited to be a member of the Viking family! 

  5. Who is someone who inspires you and why?

    Men's Team Canada player, Rudy Verhoeff who transitioned from middle blocker to right side attacker during the Rio Summer Olympics. He makes it clear how he was not able to make such a smooth transition without the help of his teammates and that attitude inspires me!

  6. What is something you enjoy spending time on outside of your sport and school? 

    CrossFit and coaching! I began CrossFit training a few years ago and really enjoy competing against my own personal bests. I've always worked and volunteered with kids, so this year I began coaching 9-and-10 year olds with Volleyball Alberta.
