Director of Programming - Summit North
I am so excited to join Summit North along side Cara to bring North Texas a competitive, high-level training atmosphere to our area! A little about me…. I developed my love of volleyball at a young age and it quickly became my passion. I played all the way through college at the University of Central Oklahoma (Go Chos!) while in college I transitioned to Libero my sophomore year which helped me earn 27 Defensive player of the year awards, All-American my senior year, and most recently (2021) inducted into the Hall of Fame. After college I continued my passion for the game and transitioned to coach. I was with LoneStar Volleyball club from 2011-2020. ( Club Director from 2016-2020) I have coached every age from 11s-17s. I qualified numerous teams while I was at LoneStar along with medaling twice at GJNC. I can’t wait to continue to grow the game of volleyball and train the next generation of volleyball players!
