My greatest coaching moment:
When the girls accomplish what we have been practicing or working on and they are successful in a game. I get very happy for the girls because I use to remember that feeling as a player.
Coaching Philosophy/Why you love to coach:
Volleyball has not just been a sport for me but has taught me TONS of life lessons. I coach to help girls with not just the sport but with whatever life throws at them. Volleyball is a wonderful out from school work and a tough day and when I see the girls so happy and excited to be there and wanted to get on the court and brings a smile to their face because they finally got their approach down or their jump serve put together and they feel accomplished and so excited. That’s why I coach, because the excitement the girls give and the thrill to get it done is exciting for me.
I enjoy beach volleyball, hunting, fishing, and doing DIYs. I am a certified dental assistant and love the country.
I am a mama to a beautiful little boy and one on the way. And a very big family girl.
