WHAT'S IT LIKE TO PLAY ON YOUR TEAM?

During a season, my goal is to help players spark a competitive edge, develop new skills and experience the importance of always showing up for their teammates. I want my teams to play tough no matter what – but have a little fun too!

AS A YOUNG ATHLETE, WHO INSPIRED YOU?

I looked up to one of my coaches. She had high expectations, but always kept a safe space for players to learn, grow and have fun. 

WHAT'S YOUR "GO TO" SONG TO GET YOU PUMPED UP?

WHAT'S YOUR CAN'T MISS TOURNAMENT SNACK?

It’s always been (and will always be) Goldfish!

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR THIS SEASON?

I’m excited to bring volleyball back for our players and families! I so value the role athletics can play in a young person’s development and I can’t wait to build a fierce team to take on 2021!
