I am from Aurora, IL and have been playing and coaching competitive volleyball since I was 13 years old. I was fortunate to earn a scholarship to play volleyball in college where I competed for Ohio State and played on a team that made it to the Final Four! I spent most of my time as an outside hitter but have also been trained and competed as a middle and a right side.
I spent over 17 years coaching collegiately at Ohio University, Florida State, Northern Illinois and Northwestern, and this is my fifth year working full time in the club volleyball scene. In addition to coaching 13 Blue I also lead the 12s Elite and Regional Gyms, and work with Eunice to develop and run all Youth Programming for MOD Volleyball.
I have a 7-year old son, Jaxen who loves being in the gym and an incredibly supportive husband, Tim who supports me in doing what I love even though it takes me away from home many evenings and weekends. I feel very fortunate that I get to do what I LOVE for a living. Volleyball has been such a big and positive part of my life and I love the opportunity to be part of that in your child’s life.
