Those values and passions guide Charlie in how she lives life and leads. 

Charlie was a standout student-athlete at Stanford University. Prior to Stanford Charlie was the 2018 AAU National Player of the Year and High School All-American. 

During her time at Stanford Charlie was an AVCA All American, as well as a four-time All Pac-12 team member and four-time Pac-12 Academic Honor Roll member, along with earning a number of other Pac-12 awards. Charlie owns the most Beach Volleyball wins in program history, having won 82 games in her 5 years on the Farm! And this is just the beginning!

While doing ALL of the amazing things as a student, athlete, and human being while at Stanford, Charlie also started getting involved with Strong Girls United 3 years ago as a FAM mentor. And, she created the Cardinal Community, the first Stanford Athletics community organization that was solely made to engage student athletes with more volunteer opportunities and endeavors.

Charlie is now a professional beach volleyball player and host of the Strong Girls Pod!
