WHY I COACH: "I coach for a few reasons. First, because I love volleyball and I want to share my passion with others. Next, I want to be the coach that I never had. I've had many coaches good and bad throughout my years and from them I've learned what not to do and what to do. I want young athletes to have a better experience than I had during my volleyball career and to reach their maximum potential. Last, I want athletes to learn how to work hard and prepare for their future. I want them to learn what they're passionate about through their experience of playing a sport, being on a team, and working hard. Being good at something takes a lot of work and time, and I hope athletes can learn this at a young age. Mainly, I hope my athletes know how much I care about them and believe in them to succeed. All I needed was one coach to believe in me and I hope I can be that coach for someone else."
VOLLEYBALL IDOL: Mary Lake!
