I started playing volleyball when I was a freshman in High School. I was only able to play in recreational leagues because of my high school not having a boy’s team. After high school I played for a University in North Carolina. While playing in College I was also an Assistant Coach for a Technical College. As I developed as a player, I also was a coach working with younger players on developing volleyball technique and skills at the YMCA. Volleyball has been my number one love since I can remember and I continue to play consistently as an adult.
I am currently living in Menasha with my cat Miles but I am originally from Sun Prairie. While going to school in Sun Prairie, I had the opportunity of being the team manager for our schools girls varsity team. I was the team manager from 8th grade throughout high school. I have been around lots of different players and coaches throughout my life and have a wide range of experience when it comes to volleyball.
This will be my 2nd year Coaching with Heat. Last year I was given the opportunity to provide group lessons for young enthusiastic players. They were either first time volleyball players or mildly seasoned players. All were looking to become more developed fundamentally to be able to get to the next stage of playing.
I am looking forward to being a head coach this season. I am a supportive, encouraging and forward driving coach. I want to help my team be the best volleyball players and team they can be. I look for 110% in effort and dedication during both practices and tournaments. I will be giving the same to ensure this season will be both a learning experience as well as a fun one for all.
This will be my first season coaching for HEAT Volleyball as an assistant coach! I was introduced to volleyball when I was a third grader and have played volleyball ever since. I played volleyball through the Chilton Public School District throughout my middle school and high school years. I also played two seasons of club volleyball for Lakeshore Storm out of Manitowoc. While attending college at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, I played intramural volleyball and sand volleyball. I graduated from Whitewater in May with a Bachelors of Business Administration degree in accounting and finance. I then accepted a full time job as an accountant at Premier Financial Credit Union in New Holstein, WI. Currently, I play volleyball in a co-ed adult league. I am very passionate about volleyball and can’t wait to share my knowledge of the sport with the team. I’m excited to see the growth of each player and the team as a whole as the season progresses, and I can’t wait to meet everyone!
