I am going into my 8th season as a coach at NorCal Volleyball Club and 1st as a boys coach at NorCal. I was born into a volleyball loving family since my parents were players and then coaches. Since I started playing competitively at 10 years old, I knew it was the sport for me. I suffered an injury at 16 and since then playing was not the same for me. I started diving even more into the mental side of the sport I loved. When playing ended, I knew I could not imagine not being around the game so I started coaching. I pride myself on maintaining a competitive attitude such that I had as a player as well as a focus on overall development of an athlete. As a coach, I work to promote qualities that will serve the athlete on the court but as well as off the court. My focus on my teams remain on perfecting fundamental skills, increasing volleyball knowledge, and developing a mental game all while remaining competitive. As a player, I chose to play at NorCal Volleyball Club because of an undeniable reputation with knowledgeable coaches who strive for excellence. I chose and continue to choose to be a part of NorCal as a coach for those same reasons as well as the positivity that comes from coaching in an environment that promotes growth, education and family. I am very grateful to be a part of NorCal and am looking forward to another great season.
