Coaching Experience: I have coached at ECP for 4 years now! 

Coaching Philosophy: Coaching is not just an opportunity to teach kids how to be good athletes, but also an opportunity to teach them how to be good people.

Best Volleyball Moment: Getting 1,000 digs, assists, and kills in high school and having my jersey retired at Archbishop Carroll High School 

My Life in Sports: I have played volleyball since I was 9 years old and haven’t stopped since. I played all throughout high school at Archbishop Caroll and made 2 playoff runs (but sadly never won.. unlike my sister who has won 4 times in a row now). I also was on the track and field team at Carroll and competed in javelin, discus, and shot put. I was a 2-year All-Catholic in track and field and a 4-year All-Catholic in volleyball. In my senior year, I was awarded the All-Delaware County Player of the Year for volleyball by the Delco Times and received All-State honors. After high school, I continued my volleyball career at La Salle University in Philadelphia and made 2 A10 playoff runs. I coached all throughout college and look forward to coaching for the rest of my life. 

Favorite subject in school: I LOVED my anatomy class in high school but my favorite subject is Algebra. 

Last Book I Read: Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur 

Favorite Movie: Bridesmaids

Favorite Quote: “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take” -Wayne Gretsky”  -Michael Scott

Person I’d Like to Have Dinner With: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Something You Probably Don’t Know About Me: I can say the alphabet backward with no hesitations.
