Bio Bits

In high school Bottazzi led her team, I.T.C. Einaudi, to the Italian national high school championship in 1990. She played professional indoor volleyball in Rivergaro, Italy as a setter until 2000, when she moved to San Diego and started playing beach volleyball. Her partner then, Manuela Broccolini, was an indoor teammate in Italy. Bottazzi played on the Italian Beach Tour for three years.

In 2003 Bottazzi married Michael Desjardins, who is also a pro beach volleyball player. Bottazi's brother, Andrea, was a professional soccer player in the Italian League, and all of her family still resides in Piacenza.
