USAV Certification Level: IMPACT Certified; SafeSport Certified
Playing Experience: I started playing volleyball in the fourth grade and have not stopped since. My love of the game has allowed me to travel the world, meet great people, and gain a infinite number of friends and colleagues. I played volleyball in high school at St. Charles High and continued my volleyball career at Benedictine College.
Coaching Experience: After I finished my last season at Benedictine College, I stayed on as a coach for the following season and that is where my coaching career began. When I moved back to St. Charles, I coached a club volleyball team for St. Charles Stars, for 4 seasons. I was then offered the Head Varsity coaching position at Winfield High School for 2 seasons. The 2019/2020 season will be my third year with PLVC.
I believe that success comes from hard work. I also believe that you have to enjoy what you are working so hard to achieve! I try to portray hard work and fun in my coaching style. As long as we are having fun and working hard, we will be successful!
