Personal Info

Q What motivates you to coach?
A

I love the sport and the opportunity to see players grow as people and athletes through learning with each other at practice. I’m especially passionate about developing the girls program and empowering young girls to see themselves as confident, capable, and amazing.

Q What is your favorite coaching moment?
A

Seeing players use the game of soccer to escape the chaos of COVID and find joy in being in-person with each other. Seeing young girls get excited to take on bigger challenges as coaches.

Q Who is/was your favorite player?
A

Currently, Rose Lavelle is my favorite player she is incredibly hard working and talented and never gives up. The whole USWNT is inspirational to me.

Q In your free time, what do you enjoy doing?
A

I’m studying to become a marriage and family therapist. I also love to hang out with my new labradoodle puppy (Hank), run, and bake.
