As a lifelong resident of the western NY area, I grew up a multi-sport athlete and daughter of a high school football coach. I was a 2 time MVP in basketball and excelled in track in the jumps and hurdles. I carried my love of athletics on as an adult, continuing to play sports and eventually becoming a PE teacher and coach of high school track, basketball, volleyball and cross country, while raising 4 children who were all 3 sport high school athletes, spanning volleyball, soccer, football, wrestling, basketball, track, tennis and baseball.

I was privileged to coach 2 of my daughters in volleyball, basketball and track, where they assisted their teams to several school championships and breaking school records in all 3 sports. They both decided to continue playing volleyball in college, one as a successful outside hitter at D3 Nazareth College, leading her team to 3 conference titles, while my youngest daughter continued her athletic career as a starting defensive specialist at D1 University of Buffalo her freshman year, and then transferred to Babson College in Boston, and is the starting libero for their successful D3 program.

As a coach, I strive to assist athletes to become the best they can be through skill development and off-season training, while teaching values of teamwork, sportsmanship and developing a work ethic that will lead them to be successful at the next level, whether in athletics or in life. I have coached track, volleyball and basketball for over 10 years for WNY Section 5 and 6 schools, Penfield, Elba and Albion. During that time, those teams have achieved league, sectional and state titles, with several individual athletes earning sectional and state honors and awards, and going on to further their athletic experiences in college.

Having an extensive background in various high school sports at the highest level and experiencing the recruitment process at each of the divisional levels from an inside perspective as both a parent and a coach, I have a strong base of knowledge to draw from to identify talent and guide aspiring student athletes to find a college that will best fits their needs and help them achieve their goals. Knowing first-hand how overwhelming the process can be, my goal is to help athletes and their families alleviate some of the unnecessary stress and make this exciting time of their lives enjoyable and positively memorable. I am excited at the opportunity to help athletes follow their dream.
