A native of Calgary, Alberta, Colleen began playing volleyball at the age of ten, and very early on decided that she wanted to represent her country as a member of the national team. Colleen played both school and club volleyball throughout junior high and high school, and went on to play C.I.S. volleyball for Queen’s University. She succeeded in being selected to the Senior Women’s National Volleyball Team in 2012...

Colleen is currently training for and aspiring to compete at the 2013 World Universiade Games in Russia and the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto. Colleen believes in grassroots sports development and the impact it can have on youth in the community. “Sports have had a great impact on my life. The relationships I developed and lessons I learned from my coaches when I was growing up have helped define the type of person I am today. They helped me develop a healthy lifestyle and strong work ethic, and instilled a sense of belief in my abilities. If there was something I wanted, I knew I had to work for it. ”
