Coaching volleyball has been a passion of mine since 1996 when I began coaching Club Volleyball for what is now Force/Synergy Volleyball Club. Over the past 18 years I have coached Beginner - Advanced athletes competing in 2 Junior Nationals, I have coached 13 Varsity Teams at Folsom High School and competed in several playoffs including the schools best historical finish of 3rd in the San Joaquin Section. From beginner volleyball at 12′s to Junior National Volleyball and High School Varsity Volleyball, I have coached it all. I love the energy the game has and the strategic and skillful talent it requires to succeed. It is so rewarding as a coach to see players develop their own personal talents through dedication and hard work.

In 2008, I started Folsom Volleyball Club as a Club for players in Folsom, but we quickly grew to Aspire Volleyball Club servicing over 150 athletes boys and girls in the Folsom and surrounding communities. I love helping youth find their own potential as an athlete and a person, helping teach kids to believe in themselves and to strive to conquer challenges brings me joy in knowing I have passed the passion forward to one more kid!  In the last 15 years, I have seen the community grow to a competitive level; I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help youth pursue their volleyball dreams and I am proud to be a part of the evolution of Volleyball in our community.
