Coaching Philosophy – I believe that having intent is extremely important for athletes on and off the volleyball court. I like to remind my players that they should have intent in everything they do which fosters a self accountability characteristic.

My life in Sports – I started out as a young athlete participating in my Church’s CYO volleyball and softball leagues at the age of 11. I drifted from softball and focused solely on Volleyball a couple of years later. I was injured in my freshman year of high school and could no longer continue playing the sport. I continued watching from the sidelines for friends and family and then was approached to coached and the rest was history! Those who can’t do Coach!

When I’m not coaching volleyball – I like to stay active and outside! You can normally find me hiking or walking my three dogs. I’m also an avid beach goer and boater.

Favorite subject in school – English

Favorite book or last book read – My favorite book is Turn of the Screw by Henry James. It’s a novella ghost story.

Favorite quote – “We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.” – Max Depree

Person I’d like to have dinner with – Oprah

Something you probably don’t know about me –  I broke my arm in the 5th grade by tripping over my dog.
