I was born and raised in Springfield, MO. I was an outside hitter for Glendale High School from 2000-2004. In 2003 we advanced to State, to the Final Four. I became all-conference and all-district in 2003 and 2004, and was an alternate for all-state in 2003. I was honored to be our teams captain throughout my high school career. I went on to play in college at MSU-WP with a full ride scholarship as a defensive specialist.
Volleyball is my main love, but I have played several sports since the age of 3. I’m a firm believer that being involved in athletics helps build a child’s character, physical and mental strength and teaches discipline and respect. Even though this is only my second year coaching for Net Results, I have experienced enough to know what kind of coach I want to be. I strive to create a positive and fun learning environment, while also pushing them to their highest potential. I believe that work ethic coupled with passion makes a fierce and strong competitor. I’m so excited to get the season started!
