Angela attended Sam Barlow High School in Gresham, Oregon where she was a dominating three-sport athlete. Her forte' and passion was volleyball and she was awarded a full scholarship at CSU to play for Coach Tom Hilbert.
While at CSU, Angela helped the Rams reach as high as third place in the national rankings, the highest the program had ever achieved, as well as three sweet 16 finishes. She received many honors during her collegiate playing years such as two-time first- team division 1 All-American, two- time conference MVP, Colorado Volleyball Sportswoman of the year, CSU female athlete of the year, and Colorado's NCAA Woman of the year. She left her mark on the record books in several categories which still stand today. CSU inducted her into its Hall of Fame in 2006.
Angela was a standout in the classroom as well as on the court. She majored in mathematics and graduated with a 3.73 grade point average as well as being honored twice as an Academic All-American.
Angela continued to pursue a volleyball career after CSU. She joined the USA volleyball Olympic training team in January 2002, but health issues forced her to withdraw in May of that year. Once healthy again she joined the professional beach volleyball tour and played through the 1999 season, gathering numerous honors and recognition along the way.
Angela makes her home in Fort Collins where she is a licensed math teacher and math tutor as owner of High Five Tutoring. She also is a private volleyball coach.
