Coming from volleyball familyShe started with volleyball early, growing up in a volleyball family with two active parents. Her mom was a coach at the collegiate-level for 16 years and then trained Sherman in high school, and accounted for a large part of her development during the first years.
Volleyball unitesAfter a professional season in Hungary, she had the opportunity to come to Sweden, where she spent the 2011/12 season at Ljungby VBK, who played in the Elitserien. Love for the sport brought her back to Sweden in winter 2013, and she now starts in her second season with Gislaved VK.
"Volleyball is my family, I have played volleyball in Austria, South Africa and Europe, and have met so many nice and good people through this sport. It does not matter where you come from, volleyball can bring people from all backgrounds together to achieve a common goal."
