Family Life:
Married to husband Trevor for 26 years. Have 4 children. Hunter, Tyler, Karlie, and Breanna.  Outside of coaching I enjoy cooking, baking, and spending time outdoors with my family. We welcomed our first grandson in March.

Volleyball has been a passion of mine since first stepping on the court in 1987 at Bay City Central high school. Loving every minute as a player throughout high school and college, and continued to play in local Rec leagues for many years. Developed a passion for coaching right out of college until I stepped away to concentrate on my career and family. Started to volunteer again at the youth level, community leagues, and local club in the early 2010’s until taking a coaching position at Bay City Western. My passion is to develop kids into the best players they can be and lead them to some great life lessons they can use in their future life as young adults.
