Where are you from?
What position do you like playing the most in volleyball?
This is a tough question, but I will have to say Setter. Setting up my offense, leading my team with strategy and victory! But.. the love for defense will never go away.. haha
Why do you play volleyball
I play volleyball because of how aggressive and gratifying it is to my soul. I always say its that fun game you play as a child “dont let the balloon touch the ground,” just 10x more intense, with a game plan behind it ;)
Who is one volleyball player (athlete) that you are inspired by and why?
During my time it was Jill Collymore from UW.. her passion for the game ALWAYS shown, and during some of my darkest times during my middle / HS years, she was the only hope I had seen to keep going no matter what.
Why do you coach? What excites you about coaching?
I coach because number one, I enjoy to lead by example. I enjoy the nature of demonstrating heart, hope, and personality in my coaching, with the education to back it up. It’s such a rewarding, yet productive feeling to impact a youths mindset and belief system.
What do you value most in your players?
- attitude; especially when the going gets tough and you can get your team out the gutter
What is your most embarrassing volleyball moment?
HA.. not that exciting but.. my most embarrassing moment would have to be when the crowd decided to not be loud and my comment was heard throughout the entire gym.
