I have been playing volleyball since 2009 through high-school and into Dovision 3 college. I have been coaching since 2016, and with CJVA since 2018.
How would you describe your coaching style?
I am calm, positive, and supportive coach. I try to make all practices fun and engaging for everyone, with as little down time for each person as possible
What is your favorite characteristic in a player?
I love to see high energy players who can keep a positive mindset for themselves and for the entire team. I love to see someone who is able to pick the whole team up mentally, leading to better play from everyone.
Who are the people that have influenced you most as a coach?
My high-school coach my senior year influenced me the most for my coaching career
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not in coaching mode?
I enjoy playing volleyball (indoor and grass), video games, and weightlifting.
What’s your favorite thing about volleyball?
I love the amount of team work that is involved to make a great team. I also love that each team is separated by a net. When things aren’t going well, you must rely on your team and your team only in order to pick it up.
