My introduction to volleyball began as a 7th grade student back in Canada. I continued to play through my years of high school. After high school, I played a few seasons of club volleyball in Kansas City while attending graduate school.
I began coaching volleyball at the age of 18 when I had the opportunity to work with a freshman team for several seasons. I got back into coaching at the Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club in 2010. In 2013, I started as an assistant coach for a U-12 team at Fusion Volleyball Club. The following season I became the head coach of a U-12 team and follow that team through the divisions for the next several seasons. I am Impact and Safe Sport certified, and have studied Gold Medal Squared Training.

My favorite aspect of coaching is being in the gym and training the fundamentals of the game while developing relationships with young athletes in our community. As a coach, I truly believe that you will get out what you put in. This happens on every level of play, either as a player or as a coach. One of my goals is to raise the level of play in the Puget Sound Region, increasing the visibility of our players on a national scale in the volleyball community.
