Greatest personal coaching moment:
 That moment after all the running, after all the gasping for breaths of air, after all the knee burns, and diving, and after all the pain and struggling I put a player through to get better, they say: “See you at the next practice, Coach!"


Coaching Philosophy/Why you love to coach:

 I love to coach because volleyball and sports in general offer so much more than just athleticism and hand-eye coordination. It  creates life-long relationships, builds character and most importantly allows us to mold the next generation into the great leaders and difference makers we know they will be.

 Anything Fun and Active
 Playing any type of board game or activity with my friends and family.
