Coaching Philosophy:  Every time you step on to a court, whether you’re in practice or a game you’re competing against yourself to be better then the day before and to help others around you become better as well.

Best Volleyball Moment: One of my favorite volleyball moments would be winning against Mary Washington at home for the first time in regular season conference play during my Senior year of college at Marymount University

My life in sports: I started playing volleyball my freshman year at Friendly High School. I fell in love and started playing club volleyball for Evolution Volleyball Club. Being a student athlete helped me do well in school, develop a number of relationships with people on the east coast. After high school, I started my college career at Marymount University in 2013. I played as a middle hitter all four years and finished my senior year as an All Region, All american honorable mention, All conference first team, and All state 2nd team. I was also nominated by Marymount as female athlete of the year. After graduating in 2017, I began my coaching career with Arlington Elite Volleyball club.  I am currently coaching at Henry E. Lackey High School as the assistant varsity coach 

When I’m Not Coaching, I am … working and taking care of my son. If I can find time to sleep I try to do that LOL

Favorite Subject in School: Psychology 

Favorite Book: I’m honestly a child at heart, so I would have to say the Twilight Series was my favorite series of books LOL

Favorite Movie: The Color Purple ( I have an old soul)

Favorite Quote: “Give me strength when I stand and faith when I fall”

Person I’d Like to have dinner with: Shonda Rhimes…. I would have to ask her why she likes to make me cry ALL the time in some of my favorite shows like Greys Anatomy, Scandal, and How to get away with murder LOL 

Something you don’t know about me:  All of my mom’s daughters were born on the same day; June 21st
