"For as long as I can remember playing volleyball is all I ever wanted to do. I could not have been more excited when I signed to play with Generika in the Philippines. It is my first pro season and just like anyone leaving home I was nervous. I am really close to my family so it was a little hard saying goodbye, but what added such a comfort was knowing that I was coming to play with my former teammate from U of A, Katerina Pilepic. Having a familiar face so far from home has really made the transition here really easy. I have felt nothing but warm welcomes and love from Generika, from the time I arrived at the airport to my first practice. I feel a strong sense of passion from the staff here at a Generika. A staff that puts their best efforts forward to ensure that its program and players are well taken care of. I love the girls on the team, even though I can't understand half of the jokes, they are always making me laugh. Despite the language barrier between us imports and the locals we are still able to connect and enjoy one another's company. I can't wait to begin playing and see where the season takes us."
