Volleyball has been a very important part of my life. Through many years of playing, I’ve learned the importance of skills such as leadership, sportsmanship, determination and hard-work, and have developed a great passion for the game of volleyball. It is my goal as a coach to teach each player all of these skills, as well as to pass on a love for this fun and exciting sport.

Why Do You Enjoy Coaching: 
As is clear from my profession, I love being involved with kids. I enjoy the connection that is made when a new skill is being taught as well as sharing in the celebration as something new is learned or accomplished.
