Fun Facts
Volleyball has been a huge part of my life for a very long time. I started playing when I was in 5th grade and from the second I stepped foot on the court I grew a huge passion for the sport and knew this was the sport for me. I have a passion for the sport and want to share that passion with other athletes. I played throughout high school and even got the opportunity to play in college at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, TX and finished at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, AR. This will be my second year coaching for Frisco Flyers. My favorite part about coaching is the connection you make with the girls and not only growing their volleyball skills, but growing them into great people off the court. I love to watch athletes grow and do things that they never thought that they could do before.

My coaching philosophy has three key components...
1.) Attitudes are contagious, I love coaching kids who want to be there and put in the work and give 100% no matter the circumstances.
2.) Playing with purpose, not just playing to play but playing with the understanding of why you are doing what you are doing.
3.) Practice doesn't make perfect;perfect practice makes perfect, what you do in practice is going to transfer into a game. You have to practice how you are going to play in a game to get better.
