Coaching Philosophy: As I grow I adjust my thinking, but have always held true to practice like you want to play and always play every play like it is your last. But above all LOVE the game you are playing!
Best Volleyball Moment: I have so many – so I’ll go with the last – watching the Cobalt team celebrate their USA bid at NEQ .
