Hello! My name is Sarah Pavan. I am a Canadian professional indoor volleyball player, and beach volleyball Olympian. I have been playing volleyball for over 20 years, and have been representing Canada internationally since 2001. Since graduating from the University of Nebraska in 2008, I have been living all over the world pursuing my professional career playing in some of the best leagues in the world, including Italy, Brazil, Korea, and China. I started playing beach volleyball in 2013 with the goal of representing my country in the Olympics, and in 2016, finished 5th at the Rio Olympic Games. I am one of the few athletes in the world who has played both sports at the highest level, and would love to be able to share some of my thoughts and experiences with the next generation!
