This is my third year coaching for New Wave and fifth year coaching volleyball. I began coaching after playing varsity volleyball for three years in high school and running track at the collegiate level. I am employed with the Newark City School district and am in my sixth year teaching. I recently made the switch to teaching 5th grade after teaching special education for the past five years. I live in New Albany and am originally from Tiffin, Ohio where I played four years for Blackswamp Volleyball Club.
