Coaching Experience: I’ve been coaching club and varsity high school volleyball for almost 20 years and have coached at Club Lehigh Power, Liberty Belles Volleyball and DVA as well Marple Newton H.S.
Coaching Philosophy: Respect, positivity and integrity are in my opinion the core principles that are guiding the team. I am all for the players and for the team. Coaching is about the team and the club not about the coach. Everyone has to contribute and this is the way I give back.
