“I have been the player, parent, and coach, and I 

believe that together we can do great things!”

​Why do I coach volleyball?

I have been involved in organized athletics since early childhood and I have a great love of many games, especially volleyball. I have been blessed to have many great coaches, experiences, and opportunities throughout my life; and I am honored to be able to share that knowledge and experience with young athletes. I have been the player, parent, and coach. I believe that together we can do great things!

Coaching Philosophy

My coaching philosophy is: (1) Build on the basics, (2) Set goals, (3) Teach every athlete responsibility and accountability to self and team, and (4) Be a positive role model.

Personal Profile

​I moved to Independence, Kentucky from Michigan in 2003 for my husband’s job. My husband, Jeff, and I have four children, two grandchildren, and one puppy. I have been a registered nurse for going on 20 years and currently work full time for Kenton County Schools. Besides volleyball I love to watch my boys play basketball.
