Volleyball has been my passion for as long as I can remember. After playing for 10 years, I now have the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for the game with others as a coach. I have coached for Aspire Volleyball Club since its inception in 2008, and have experience coaching at various age levels, from 12s through 17s. Last season, Melissa Schupp and I co-coached the 17-1 team, which earned a regional bid to Junior Nationals--the first bid in Aspire Volleyball Club's history. I have also coached at all three levels at Folsom High School since 2009, and am currently in my third season as the Varsity Head Coach.

I believe volleyball is one of the most complex and rewarding sports, and I enjoy helping players gain the confidence and skill needed to be successful and competitive players. I love that I get the chance to spark a passion for volleyball in each girl I get the privilege to coach.
