Where are you from?
What position do you like playing the most in volleyball?
Why do you play volleyball?
Who is one volleyball player (athlete) that you are inspired by and why?
Brenda Castillo, she’s a member of the Dominican Republic National Team and plays the libero, she is all over the place on the court. And it’s super fun to watch her play because there are literally no drop balls.
Why do you coach? What excites you about coaching?
I love the honor and opportunity to speak into an athlete's true significance, and play a role in transforming the heart of an individual. To get a window to cultivate athlete development and motivate what’s being learned on the court to integrate those into their purpose and character off the court is a challenge and passion that I really can’t get enough of.
What do you value most in your players?
A hunger for learning,relentless effort, and being a good teammate. Great teammates shift the culture around them to not only be the best they can be but also push the entire team to its full potential. It takes a lot of courage to continue going at it even amidst mistakes and disappointments.
What is your most embarrassing volleyball moment?
That one time when the floors just got waxed. Going in with a lot of speed and inertia for the dig and my body just kept on going, and going, and going. Until I smacked into the back wall. Waxed floors will getchya.
