I started playing volleyball in my freshman year of high school. In my little town they did not offer volleyball until high school. From the moment I learned how to play the game, I fell in Love. I have played many sports growing up and my love for sports has grown with me. Volleyball is the one that I continue to want to play, coach and learn about. I went to the University of North Texas where I received my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology. I married my high school sweetheart and had two children (Grace - 13 and Logan - 10). I had a family and then became a first grade teacher in Allen. I love teaching, but I miss coaching. My love for this game just continues to grow as time goes on, and now my daughter has developed a love for the game as well. I am excited that we get to enjoy this sport we love so much together!! This will be my third year of coaching club and my first year coaching with Slam. I am so excited to be with such a great club!
My coaching philosophy is to see and learn about each athlete as individuals. Every athlete is different and should be approached in a different way. My goal is to learn what motivates each player and to help them to develop their own realistic short and long term goals.
