WHY I COACH: "I love the game of volleyball and I want to rub some of that love onto the athletes i work with.  I have learned so much about myself and about others through playing the game. I love showing the athletes that I work with that you can always push yourself mentally and physically to reach heights you may not realize you could. I want to help my athletes and teams see the potential that they have to work together and come out with the win. It is one of the most rewarding things to see growth in the people you work with and volleyball is a fantastic way to see that."
