Played two years of club volleyball & 4 years of rec league at the University of Maine, Orono.
It is important to me to not only help improve my girls’ technical skills, but to work to improve their team membership, leadership, and chemistry as a group. It is my goal for my players to get better at the game, but also grow in heart and character. This year is unlike any other, so I want the girls to really enjoy their season!
Why I Love Coaching:
Coaching combines my favorite things about teaching with my love for the game! It allows me to build relationships with players, to help them grow as young women and athletes and serves as an opportunity for me to give back to the next group of volleyball players. Volleyball is a game filled with so much joy and passion, and I get to continue to live that through coaching.
My Day Job:
