Get to Know Evina Westbrook

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Evina was introduced to basketball at a young age by her father, who was a coach at a local gym. Being surrounded by the sport, Evina quickly found an interest in playing. After playing with her brothers at home and joining a local girls’ team, her parents soon realized that she needed more of a challenge. “We saw early that her skill level was above normal,” her dad said. This led to her joining the local boys’ team, which she played on until high school.

Evina became a star player in high school, joining the South Salem High School’s girls’ varsity team and helping the team win back-to-back state titles. Her accolades include being a two-time Gatorade Oregon Girls Player of the Year, a McDonald’s All-American, a Naismith All-American, and the 2017 USA Today National Player of the Year.

Evina was the No.2 player in the Class of 2017. She attended the University of Tennessee, where she was named to the 2018 SEC All-Freshman Team. In 2019, Evina announced that she was transferring to the University of Connecticut. While at UConn, Evina helped lead her team to the championship game of the 2021 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Tournament.

In 2022, Evina was drafted to the WNBA Seattle Storm. She went on to play for the Minnesota Lynx before signing with the Washington Mystics. Her mom emphasized Evina’s dedication to her dream of going pro, saying “This wasn’t by mistake, this wasn’t luck, this was all Vina’s hard work since she was 7.”

What to Expect

REVEL Moments are #humanfirst, which means we will focus on the human behind the athlete and bring to life untold stories, insights, and lessons learned that can inspire, educate, or uplift everyone. 

What to Expect

We want REVEL Moments events to be fun, intimate, and empathetic — leaving you with moments of elevation, pride, and insight about your host and their path in life. To do this we want you to be part of the event so get ready:
  • To be on screen (as the audience will be visible)!
  • Submit a question in advance of the event as you may get a chance to join us on stage and ask the question live.
  • If so moved (+ over 21 years old!) grab an adult beverage and sit back to enjoy the athlete joining you in the room.
A typical REVEL Moments event lasts between 45 - 60 minutes. For more details check out our FAQs.

How many other people will be there?

REVEL Moments events are meant to feel intimate and have been crafted so you feel like you are in a small setting, truly learning who your host is. The number of tickets issued for each event will vary and always be limited.

How can I provide input into what stories I would like to learn about?

Join the conversation! Every time you purchase a ticket, you will be asked to respond to a 1-minute survey about what you would like your host and moderator to talk about. We review every response and incorporate them into the planned content for that event.
