Coaching Philosophy/Why you love to coach:
Coaching has always been a passion of mine. I love seeing progress from my athletes and value improvement from every practice. I’m big on creating an environment where my athletes will continually grow and learn from their experiences. I strive to have my athletes give their all every practice and have an understanding that growth is a result of hard work. I want to train athletes not just as volleyball players. I believe it is important for the athletes to gain IQ in the sport along with technical skill. I want challenging practices that push the athletes through competition with their teammates, overall making them better players. WINNING IS THE GOAL; GROWTH IS THE MEANS!!!
When I’m not coaching volleyball, I am normally playing it! I also hang out with my husband and our 3 pups! I also love road trips and music!
