My passion is helping people to become better versions of themselves. I have a focus on individual health, team sports and overall wellness. My areas of technical skills are in coaching volleyball for youth and adults.
I began coaching men’s and women’s volleyball in 1999. I played at the high school varsity, high school junior olympic level, college D-1 varsity hockey, and D-1 college club volleyball. I am a Gold Medal Squared certified volleyball, and have taken coaching clinic with The Art of Coaching. I currently am coaching with the Piedmont Middle School and Piedmont High School teams.
About myself, beyond the court, I have also spent 19 years in the martial arts and have a black belt in kung fu having competed successfully in full contact sparring tournaments as well as performed successfully at various competitions. I also am a Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor. I am currently enrolled in a NASM certified personal trainer program to be completed in 2023.
In volleyball, I work with young volleyball players to develop are more competent, confident and knowledgeable athlete on and off the court. I work with my clients to strengthen the body, sharpen the skills and hone the knowledge necessary for success.
