I seek to share my love for the game! I want our players to improve in their volleyball performance and IQ, while finding the joy of working hard, caring about their team, and making the best of each practice and each game. I want our players to achieve their personal goals, develop long-life friendships, and learn how to a be better team player.
Why I Love Coaching:
I love volleyball and I love working with young adults. At the age of 13, I started playing volleyball in southern California and was hooked. I remember all my coaches and their words that continue to inspire me.
“Having the chance to play sports growing up teaches you all kinds of life lessons. It gives young people confidence and instills in them motivation and drive to be the best one can be. It’s absolutely invaluable.” -April Ross
My Day Job:

Born in Long Beach, California. Resided in Underhill, Vermont for 20 years. Now living in Falmouth, Maine.
I love coffee! You can find me reading a book with a nice cup of coffee at Coffee by Design on the weekends.
