Hey everyone! I'm a 1.91m (6'3") professional volleyball player (Middle Blocker to be more precise). I'm currently a national team athlete for Estonia and I recently joined the Vandoeuvre Nancy Volley-Ball team in the Ligue À Féminine in the LNV (the highest league in France).
I have previously played in the highest leagues in the Philippines (Meralco Power Spikers, PSL), Germany (Schwarz-Weiss Erfurt, 1.Bundesliga) and this is will be my second season in the LAF as last year I was a part of the Stade Français Paris Saint Cloud team.
Here's a little about how I got to where I am now: I started playing volleyball when I was 16, after competing in track and field events for 9 years(!). I started in the Audentes Sports Gymnasium in Tallinn, Estonia where we trained twice a day all through high school. During that time I gained necessary experience in the Estonian women's volleyball league as a middle blocker (MB). After finishing high school (2010), I went to the United States to play volleyball at Ohio University. I started as a MB but got trained into OH/OPP after my first collegiate season. After graduating from Ohio University (2014), I transfered to Duquesne University to take advantage of my final year of eligibility (OPP). After graduating from Duquesne with an MBA (July 2015), I started my first season as a professional volleyball player in the Philippines where I played in all attacking positions during the short 3-month season (Sept-Nov 2015). In the spring (Jan-April 2016), I played as OPP for SWE Volley-Team in 2.Bundesliga in Germany and helped the team to a second place finish in the league. Since 2013, I have been a part of the Estonian National Volleyball team as Middle Blocker. In 2013, I helped the Estonian team advance to the third round of World Championship Qualifiers (in Azerbaijan, 2014) after beating Latvia, Lithuania and Iceland in the first round. Although we lost to the strong teams of Serbia, Azerbaijan and Israel in the 3.round, we gained invaluable experience that helped us grow as a team. In May 2016, we beat the national teams of Denmark, Luxembourg and Sweden to win our pool in the first round of Eurovolley 2017. After that, I decided to continue in Germany and stayed in Erfurt, except this time we moved up to 1.Bundesliga and the team was rebranded to Schwarz-Weiss Erfurt. After a quite unsuccessful season for this team, I decided that it was time to move on and accepted an offer to play in Paris in the LAF. After that season, I again joined the national team when in May and June 2018 we participated in the European Silver League for the first time in our country's history. We were able to advance to the Final Four with the national teams of Sweden, Austria and Albania.
