More about Coach Barbara

My favorite part about coaching volleyball?
My favorite part about coaching volleyball is sharing my experience and my love of the game with players who are looking to better themselves and their skills and continue to play at a higher level. I love seeing each player grow in their skill and the knowledge of the game. My absolute favorite thing is seeing players get excited about making plays and making progress and watching them grow throughout the season.

Favorite VB memory?
Going undefeated 3 days in a row at AAU Nationals

Why Wisconsin Premier Volleyball Club?
I love that there’s such a strong support system for coaches and players – it feels like one big family.

What do you do outside of volleyball?
I’m an Account Executive for The Bene Network. When I’m not working or coaching volleyball, I’m playing volleyball or basketball, spending time with friends and family, drinking too much coffee, or watching The Office.
