Personal: Hart comes from an athletic background, with her father, Jim, having competed in swimming and water polo at Virginia Military Institute. She is the oldest of two children in her family. She graduated from Wisconsin in May 2022 with a degree in life sciences communication and is currently pursuing a graduate degree in sports leadership. Outside of volleyball, Hart's interests include her yellow lab named Max and her passion for art. She credits Wisconsin head volleyball coach Kelly Sheffield as one of the people who have made a significant difference in her life. If not for her volleyball career, she envisions herself as a full-time wedding photographer and owns an ocean epoxy resin art business, shophartart.com. In her earlier years, she participated in art camps and swimming until middle school. Her volleyball journey began in the seventh grade. Hart enjoys traveling and going on road trips, and her jersey number, No. 3, was chosen with the help of her roommates.
