Varsity Head Coach for Port Washington HS- 2017
Coached with Premier since 2013
I have been playing volleyball since I was in the third grade and played all through high school and college.
Your favorite part about coaching volleyball?
I love watching my players grow as individuals and improve their skills, but I love bringing together each player to become a team. I love seeing the growth in volleyball, but as a person as well. I believe playing on a team helps build the relationships, and making individuals become better people.
Favorite VB memory
My favorite volleyball memory to date is the parent’s night practice we had last season. We thought it would be fun for out last practice to bring in parents to play against the team. This was the parents could bond more with the daughter, and realize how hard the girls work. I have never laughed so hard at a practice and had the most fun.
Why Wisconsin Premier Volleyball Club?
I choose Premier, because I knew Alex beforehand. I loved the idea of trying something new and with a new club. Now knowing Premier better I like the fast pace and high intensity Premier has. I know how much growth can happen in one season, because I have witnessed it the past 2 seasons. I love how close we are as a staff, and the family environment you get with your team.
What do you do outside of volleyball?
I recently graduated from Concordia with a business degree. I am now working almost full time at the YMCA in Port Washington. I work with almost all youth programs, such as school age, babysitting, youth sports, and a new program WRAP.
