Coaching Philosophy: My coaching philosophy is you get out of it what you put into it. If you work hard and give it your all, you will find success. Be motivated, be positive, be present, be coachable, be your best, & good things will come!
Best Volleyball Moment: My best volleyball moment came while I was coaching a varsity high school team in 2009. I took over a struggling program and morale was low. We entered into a competitive tournament and fought our way to the finals, bringing back the first volleyball trophy in the school’s history. The joy I saw in the eyes of the players & parents still makes me smile today!
My life in Sports: I started playing volleyball in 7th grade and played with my best friend throughout high school. I attended 2 summer camps at the University of Delaware that really shaped me as a player. I went on to play club ball my senior year which helped me prepare for college. I was a starting outside hitter for Harcum College for 2 years. We won the league championship and I was selected for the All-star team.
When I’m not coaching volleyball: I’m spending time with my husband & 3 sons, Anthony, Matthew, & Gabriel. They are involved in all sports so I am always watching someone play. I also enjoy playing volleyball in an adult league as well as traveling & cooking.
