What is your favorite volleyball memory?
it's hard to narrow down to a favorite but as a player, it was winning a gold medal at Jo's in 1991, pretty unbelievable team many of whom are still involved with the game in some fashion. As a coach, the best memories for me are reconnecting with players after they have graduated. i love seeing who they have become, meeting their families and knowing i was able to share a chapter of their lives.
Who would you most like to meet (past or present)?
Matthew mcconaughey, i just think he'd be great to have at a bbq and then maybe he could CHAUFFEUR me around in his lincoln.
How would you describe your coaching style? What is your favorite part of the game to coach?
i enjoy all facets of the game. I've worked with serve RECEIVE and pin attacking the most in my years at the collegiate level and have found that to be a lot of fun. I'd say my coaching style is ever-changing depending on the athletes i am working with. WOrking as a special education teacher for 5 years allows me to understand that everyone learns differently. I do my best to bring what the situation calls for.
