Coaching Experience:

I have helped out with running high school elite camps at Saint Joseph’s College for the past 2 years.

Playing Experience:

I have been playing since I was 10 years old, making for 10 years of playing experience, including:
-Saint Joseph’s College of Maine: 2019-present, I am a current junior outside hitter on the team.
-Deering High School: 2015-2019, played two years on varsity where my senior year I received the Casavola Sportsmanship Award and played in a post season All State Game with top players from each team.
Maine Juniors: 2011-2019, I started playing on the 12’s teams, after I moved out of this age group I played on 14 Bronze and 14 silver for my season before moving into the 16 age group where I then played on 16 silver for two seasons. For my last two seasons at Maine Juniors I was in the 18 age division and played on 18 silver and 18 regional.

Coaches Outlook:

This season I hope to encourage all players to become to best volleyball player they can be with a high level of confidence and positivity both on and off the court. I also want to help all of them develop how to play well together as a team to succeed to their highest potential. I’m super excited to see what this season brings for us! 🙂

Why I Love Coaching:

I love coaching because I love sharing my knowledge of the sport with other players. I love seeing how much each individual player improves from the beginning of the season to the end, and I want to help others play to the highest level of competition they can!
