This is my 3rd year of coaching volleyball. I have been playing volleyball for 8 years including years of middle school and 4 years at Hoffman Estates High School, In addition to playing on the varsity level for 3 years, I was honored with being varsity captain. I am also a proud DIVC alumni, spending 3 successful seasons at a club I love so much that I had to come back! Currently, I play at Harper College as a starting outside hitter, where my team ended up winning the Regional and National championships.

I started my journey with volleyball over 12 years ago playing everything from beach to being an outside varsity hitter. I began coaching club a few years ago which lead to my current position as the Girl’s Junior Varsity coach at Fenton High School. Using multiple coaching techniques I am a fusion of hardwork and fun when it comes to volleyball. I have coached girls from the ages of 12 to 16 years old with multiple 1st place finishes throughout the years. While coaching these young ladies I hope to help mold well-rounded, competitive and successful athlete.

I started coaching while in college and just graduated in May. I moved to the Chicago area after school and this will be my first year with DIVC. I am excited to see what great things we can accomplish this year!
