I Graduated from Niles West High School as a 3 sport athlete. I then attended Oakton Community College and played NJCAA Volleyball. I had the privilege to serve as team captain, and earned multiple All Tournament and All Conference awards throughout my time there.
I closed out my playing career for Robert Morris University and then began coaching with Maine South High School and Skyline Volleyball Club. While working with Skyline I served as an Asst. Director and helped to start a youth program there. I then continued on to coach with Division 1 VBC (now MOD), and now coach at Niles West High School for both the boys and girls Junior Varsity Team.
I have coached just about all age groups, and have refined my coaching philosophy through the time spent with each program. I emphasize working together as a family and developing a good work ethic at a young age. I firmly believe that playing sports at a young age helps to build confidence and character!
I’m excited to take on the Director of Youth Development role at MOD, working with KJ continue creating new opportunities for young athletes to discover and grow their love for the sport!
