Shaua started playing volleyball in middle school and high school in Lebanon, OR. She loved volleyball and couldn’t get enough. Played in adult leagues, traveling teams, open gyms, and tournaments most days of the week, year round, for as long as she can remember and coached her daughters. When she moved to Portland she coached for middle school kids through Portland Park and Rec for six years. Also coached for the Grant Youth Volleyball program through Portland Public Schools for two years. It has been a rewarding adventure because middle schoolers typically have a lot of enthusiasm, listen and are eager to learn – then I get to see them play in high school. She still loves to play volleyball.
