VOLLEYBALL EXPERIENCE

Believe it or not, I have never played the sport.  I was a volleyball 1streferee in Ohio for 18 years and became  student of the game.  I learned from some of the best coaches out there and the game became my passion.

I coached HS for 26 years, was a Club Director in Ohio for 12 years, prior to stepping into the Club Director at DME in 2015.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN VOLLEYBALL

WHY DO YOU COACH VB AND WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT IT?

I coach because I had great coaches that made a difference in my life. In coaching I get to work with young people. I get to guide them in 2 of the most important games they will ever play: life and sports.  Coaches get the opportunity to help mold young people into adults and I cannot think of a better profession in the world today.

VOLLEYBALL EXPERIENCE (PLAYING AND COACHING):

I started playing volleyball in middle school and continued to play 4 years in high school.   I was a member of one of the very first Florida Elite club teams.   After high school I spent 2 years playing volleyball at Florida State College at Jacksonville before transferring to the University of Florida to pursue a career in Nursing.

I first started coaching 10 and under while at Florida State College.  I was brought back to coaching in 2007 when I had the opportunity to coach boys and girls middle school volleyball.  When my oldest was 10 she expressed an interest in playing club volleyball and I had the honor of coaching in that environment as well.

WHY DO YOU COACH VOLLEYBALL?  OR WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT COACHING?

I coach volleyball to spread the love and passion for the game.  It is so rewarding to see young individuals grow in their technical skill of volleyball but also in life.  There is so much more to coaching than wins and losses.  This is where lifelong friendships are made, an environment where tough life lessons can be learned, the sense of responsibility and accountability developed.  It’s a place to make a positive impact on a young life at the same time allowing the young athletes to make a positive impact on my own!

HOBBIES

Volleyball of course!  Anything crafty- I love to sew, make things, and take pictures.  I also love spending time with my family!

VOLLEYBALL EXPERIENCE (PLAYING AND COACHING)

Started playing in high school my junior year at Iona Preparatory school in New Rochelle, NY. During that time we made it to the championship and was the only underclassman to start. My senior year I received MVP at the end of the season and led the team in kills, blocks, and aces. After graduation I went to play for Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY as an outside hitter. Marist was a D2 club in the NECVL (New England Collegiate Volleyball League) conference. During my time there we made it to divisional playoffs all 4 years and junior year we made it to the championship as the 6 seed playing the 1 seed and lost in the final set giving them a run for their money. I played an active roll with the team on and off the court with my first year being the treasurer, second year the vice president, and final two years as the president/captain. Throughout college to now I continue to play beach volleyball competitively and have won 8 tournaments in NY, CT, and FL. I have coached boys and girls volleyball for several years at the club and high school level in NY and FL. Some of the programs I have been affiliated with include Westchester Pride Volleyball Club, Woodlands high school, Iona Preparatory high school, Father Lopez high school, and currently with DME.

WHY DO YOU COACH VOLLEYBALL?  OR WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT COACHING?

The best aspect of coaching is the ability to spread the love and passion I have for the sport to the boys and girls around me. Volleyball has given me so many opportunities, friendships, and life lessons that I will continue to instill to those I coach. Being able to teach what I have learned throughout the years, both physically and mentally, can help grow others to be the best they can be both on and off the court.

HOBBIES

I like to do anything outdoors, play volleyball, travel, try new things, work out, spend time with friends, go to sporting events, learn, hang with my cat Boots, anything really.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN VOLLEYBALL

Boys High School State Final four twice. Club National Runner up at AAU, Many All County players. While never winning any lavish grand prize, I’ve done some awesome stuff in my career. Played against national teams, Olympians, worked with and learned from professionals (players and coaches). Built a productive club in both adult college club and juniors club levels. But the biggest accomplishment to me is having coached both club and high school (boys and girls) year-round, four teams and having made so many memories over the years with those teams.

WHY DO YOU COACH VOLLEYBALL?  OR WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT COACHING?

I enjoy connecting with the players, getting them to buy in to something different. Pushing someone to be better than they were. I enjoy seeing lightbulbs go off in their heads and shine bright when successfully executing a tough skill set. I enjoy building character and letting kids make tough choices whether they fail or succeed (Sometimes they have to fail to learn how to pick themselves back up). I enjoy NOT babying kids and being tough on them, so they develop thick skin and don’t become part of this increasingly sensitive world. I enjoy teaching independence, confidence, discipline and above all a great sense of humor to balance out all the tough work we put in. 

HOBBIES

Basketball in any form. HUGE Miami Heat Fan. Playing NBA 2K. Spending time with family and Traveling.

WHY DO YOU COACH VOLLEYBALL?  OR WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT COACHING?

I coach volleyball because I love the sport. I hope to pass down information and skills that I have picked up along the way. Volleyball has not only been an important part of my life athletically, but I have learned various life- skills through the sport. I think it is an important part of life to learn team- work and a healthy competitive mentally and I believe coaching allows me to effectively introduce those traits to up and coming athletes. The thing I enjoy most about coaching is when athletes finally understand that the game is unpredictable, and they must learn to adapt throughout active play. This not something you can teach, this is a concept they must figure out through game- play.

Playing volleyball, Dance Dance Revolution, Shopping.
