It is an honor to be serving alongside Team USA's Volleyball members in the creation and implementation of this project. As a member of the board of directors, I am excited to help  create a sustainable foundation for elite athletes to use their platform to "give back" to the community.

The Give It Back Foundation exists to bring funding and awareness to local charities while inspiring and empowering young athletes through sport and an overall approach to living with a championship mindset.  

Through sport camps members of Team USA Women's National Volleyball Team will cultivate self-confidence, self-awareness, leadership skills, and an excitement that allows every athlete to enjoy the process of working towards their goals and becoming their best self.  We will use what we’ve been given to give back to not only the athletes we work with, but also local organizations, as all net profits will be given back to make an impact in the community that we teach and serve. 

We believe in using what we’ve been given to make a difference in the lives of others.  We believe in engaging in our local communities and empowering the next generation.  We value honesty, integrity, enthusiasm, mindfulness, competition and continual effort towards growth.

To date the organization has raised $45,000 to benefit the Children's Therapy Center in Kent Washington and HUGS Hawaii. Check out the highlight and interview video below!
