I am an instructor for catchers, hitting, and infielding. I specialized in power-hitting, even for small girls, and catching. I love sharing my passion for softball with others, especially helping young athletes remember why they started playing in the first place. I will help a student reach their goal by drills and asking what they struggle with and need to work on the most. My experience includes playing for American Freedom National Team, along with being the captain at my high school, along with many D1 offers. My accomplishments include as a sophomore, junior, and senior year was elected one of the top players in Dallas-Fort Worth by Star Telegram, got my first offer as a sophomore from University of Tennessee at Martin (D1). Junior year was voted by the state of Texas "hitter of the week" for two home runs, 6 RBI's vs. Flower Mound High School in game 3 in playoffs and made history for the first time in 16 years at my school. Made 5-6A Second Team All-District. Senior year had 7 offers for D1 schools. Made all Metroplex Game, 5-6A First Team All-District. Was spoken about 8 times senior year in Star Telegram. Had 7 homeruns out of 13 games, batting average was .437 (season cut short because of COVID-19). Won a national Championship with select team (USSSA National Championship, USA tournament). TC/USA Nationals on ESPN-3rd place. Asked to play for Junior Team USA for two months traveling the world (couldn't go, COVID-19). Won 1st place in 22 tournaments. Qualified for PGF 4 times (biggest tournament in US, sponcered by Gatorade in Huntington Beach, California).
I enjoy helping students grow mentally and physically. Passing on the skills and knowledge I have about the game has helped so many of my past teammates or younger players to help them improve makes my passion for the game even stronger.

For catching lessons the typical process is drills for blocking, framing the pitch, throwing a runner out, or anything the student is stuggling with. For batting lessons, using a tee to make sure have a good path to the ball and making contact, then adding in using all of our body to power the ball, then when getting more advanced we will practice hitting pitches in different locations and zones. Along with front pitching so the student can use what they learned off of front toss. When trying to speed up bat speed, using tennis balls is beneficial and helps not tire out the student.
I currently give lessons to all ages and beginners, even 18 year olds and my old teammates who play in college. I was the captain of my high school team and won a national championship in travel softball. I also was voted by the state of Texas, "Hitter of the Week" during playoffs, and have been voted 3 times one of the top players in 5-6A in Dallas-Fort Worth. Senior year had 9 mentions in Star Telegram.
