I am a mom of five. That’s right, five amazing, beautiful, crazy kids; a 16yr old son, 12, 8, & 5yr old daughters & last but not least & for sure the silliest of them all, our 2yr old son. We love all kids and have a few animals at home that you will get to hear about.
I grew up in Utah & started playing club in 4th grade. I played in school & club volleyball throughout my junior high & high school years & was team captain & MVP most of my school career. My team and I made it to the Junior Nationals, and I played on High Performance two years in a row against teams from around the world.
I started my college career in 2001, playing at Sheridan College and coaching volleyball clinics during the offseason at local schools/rec centers. From 2003-2008, I played indoor & outdoor ball in Vegas both coed & women’s AA/A leagues, which is also where I met my husband.
In 2008, I coached JV High School Volleyball for one year at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas and then moved to Germany where I coached Middle School Volleyball & played for the Air Force Base volleyball team. This led to being recruited to play for the German team where I got to travel in Europe for two years.
For the next few years, I moved around a bit. First to Arizona in 2012 where I coached for White Tank Mountain Volleyball Club 16U and 12U teams. I also coached private/group lessons & continued playing on a women’s league & coed league with my husband for three years. Then in 2016, I moved to Colorado Springs where I played in a women’s league & coached clinics for youth church groups for 12-18yo girls for two years.
In 2018, we moved to PA once my hubby retired from the Air Force. We continue to play coed ball together! I started with Prevail in 2019 coaching the girls’ U17 team, and now the girls 12U team in 2020. I recently accepted the Head JV Girls Volleyball Coach at Milton Hershey School, but sadly COVID canceled our fall season.
I’m all about teaching, learning from mistakes, positive, encouraging talk & being inclusive of everyone, their differences & their abilities. We are building our future players & leaders of tomorrow, no negativity! There is enough of it in the world, so lets leave it off the court. I look forward to meeting everyone & hope to have a fantastic year!

I have been coaching volleyball since 2000. Started a high school team in New Jersey and won a state championship in the 7th year of the program.

I enjoy working with athletes, helping them to grow their skills and knowledge of the game, but most importantly helping them grow into respectful young adults. One of my happiest moments as a coach is seeing that player finally succeed at mastering a new skill, winning isn’t so bad either. I am happy to chat with everyone about volleyball, but even more so about Disney, which is another passion for me. I look forward to seeing you all around the gym.
