Deciding to play for Birmingham Beach was a blessing in disguise for me. Playing indoor volleyball all of my life, it never crossed my mind to play beach. It all started one day coach Joe saw me playing indoor and asked me to come tryout beach. I didn’t think I would have an opportunity to play in college since I started playing at the end of my junior year in high school. I am extremely grateful for Birmingham Beach as a program, but also Joe and Jodie for pushing and encouraging me through the whole process.
