Kerri Walsh Jennings

BIO

Kerri Walsh Jennings began her career on the indoor volleyball court at Stanford University and garnered a number of records before transitioning to the sand where she and teammate Misty May-Treanor became the unstoppable duo garnering the most wins in beach volleyball history. Together, Walsh and May-Treanor have won three Olympic gold medals; Athens (2004), Beijing (2008) and London (2012). Walsh is a Two-time Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) MVP, a Six-time Team of the Year recipient with May-Treanor, and AVP Best Offensive and Most Outstanding Player in 2003 and 2007. In addition, The Federation of International Volleyball (FIVB) named her Best Hitter, Best Blocker and Sportsperson in 2007. She is only the second player in NCAA history to receive First-Team All-American honors all four seasons while at Stanford University (1996-1999) and in 2011 she will be inducted into the Stanford University Hall of Fame.

Off the court, Walsh is dedicated to her “Chase the Stars” Foundation whose mission is to make an immediate and positive impact on the lives of as many children as possible. Walsh and the organization have supported various charity partners from St. Jude to the local Boys & Girls Club of Silicon Valley.

Married to U.S. volleyball player, Casey Jennings, Walsh is also the proud mom of two young sons and resides in Manhattan Beach, CA.
