I am so excited to start my first year of coaching at BRVBA alongside my friend and former teammate Hans Koennecke.
I currently co-coach the JV-C team and assist with the JV and Varsity teams at Garfield High School in Seattle.
I’ve been playing volleyball as a setter for more than 20 years, including 3 years on my high school varsity team in Southern California, 6 years of club ball in California, and 4 years of club at Syracuse University. For the majority of that time, I was the setter in a 5-1 system.
After graduating, I kept playing in adult rec leagues in Iowa and here in Seattle. That’s how I met my fiancé, who also played club-level volleyball throughout his life, and will make a guest appearance at a tournament or two!
On Day 1, I will ask each player what their goal is for the season, and I will help each one of them on their journey to achieve that goal. I was trained under some incredible coaches, and am thrilled to pass that knowledge along to my players.
I expect players to work hard and be good teammates on and off the court. My biggest rules: have fun and try your best!
