This is my 2nd season with the SpikedCityDC Volleyball Family as a coach for the 2020 Club Volleyball Season. Hailing from Forestville, Maryland, I started my volleyball career as a player for Maryland Juniors Volleyball Club back in 2007. Having a lot of success in high school, I attended Stone Ridge School of the Heart playing all four years as a Varsity starter. Over the course my time in high school, I played for various clubs across the area including Metro American Volleyball Club and Maryland Juniors again. In my senior season, I injured my foot causing volleyball to no longer be an option in college. This is where my playing ended and my coaching began. I started at Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL in the fall of 2013. In my sophomore season, I began a position as Student Assistant for the newly inaugurated NCAA DII Badgers. That opened several opportunities for coaching.
In the 2014-2015 Club Season, I began a new position as an Assistant Coach for Mobile Storm Volleyball Club. Starting as an assistant, I quickly grew to Head Coach, due to the coach becoming ill. The following season (2015 - 2016) I had the pleasure of selecting my own team and garnered 2 Gold Medals at tournaments in the Gulf Coast Region. The following year I was then offered a position as an Assistant Coach for St. Paul’s Episcopal, a state-ranked volleyball program located in Mobile, AL. That season the saints won the 5A State Championships. In the 2016 - 2017 club season I was the Co-Head Coach for the 18 Elite Team for Mobile Storm, and had a successful season. In 2017, I was asked to Head Coach JV for St. Paul’s Episcopal, while still assistant coaching for varsity. This was my final time coaching in Mobile.
After graduating from Spring Hill College, I moved from Mobile to Maryland, and began to pursue her post-graduate plans, her career. I am now a full-time School Administrator at Howard University Middle School. My future plans are to attend graduate school at Howard University and become a full time School Counselor. My main goal in volleyball is that everyone improves in some way, shape, or form. I am very excited to be coaching with SpikeDCity Volleyball this year!
