About this pro

Former collegiate softball player (UNC Chapel Hill 2015-2019) and current Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS-NSCA) with 7+ years of coaching experience.

I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a major in Exercise and Sport Science and a minor in Coaching Education. I have coached athletes of all ages ranging between 4 and 23 years old for about 5 years. I have helped many travel softball teams and coaches develop practice plans with new drills to improve their skillset. I have a special interest in slapping and strength and conditioning. I am a certified strength and conditioning specialist who loves working with athletes to become stronger, faster and more agile on the field. I love to work with all ages and levels of softball players!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I typically like to structure the session (1 hour) into 4, 15 minute minute sections. Depending on the athlete and their specific goals, I like to always start with some quick speed and agility training. This will serve as a warm-up for the rest of the lesson as well as incorporate aspects of sprinting, cutting, and change of direction needed for competition. The next 30 minutes I like to run a fast paced, yet effective, training session that will isolate specifically what we are targeting to improve (slapping, infield, outfield, base running, etc). The last 15 minutes, I try to put the athlete in a realistic game like environment where they can practice not only their skills we just worked on, but also their mental game needed to succeed in competition. I also like to demonstrate by showing rather than just lecturing them on the correct form. I strongly believe that it is easier to learn when you have someone to model after in terms of technique.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I played collegiate softball at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2015-2019). In college, I was a four year starter playing many different positions. I was fortunate enough to have opportunities both in the infield and the outfield at the collegiate level, with experience at right field, left field, first base and second base; essentially covering all major positions (other than pitcher and catcher). My senior year (2019) I broke the career stolen base record with a total of 105 and led the team in many other offensive categories. In my four years, I also was an NFCA Academic All-American, 2x- All ACC Performer, and a Leader of Distinction from the Richard A. Baddour Leadership Academy.
