10u Head Coach
Club Director
Playing/Coaching Experience:
I've been coaching with Marion Magic since 2006. My favorite event is always Regionals - it's a great measure of the team's success and it's always a fun weekend with the Magic families. In 2014, I became Club Director and have thoroughly enjoyed watching the club grow year over year, especially with the youth. The following year, I received the opportunity to coach Freshmen at MHS and also received my coaching authorization.

Family:  
In May 2016, Jeff and I welcomed our first child, Charlotte, to the world. I enjoy spending time with my family, and playing and coaching volleyball.

Education:
I am currently working on my Bachelor's Degree in Business and Human Resource Management from Mt. Mercy University.

Hobbies/Activities:
Outside of volleyball, I spend a lot of my time working for Wells Fargo Equipment Finance, reading, watching my weekly lineup (This Is Us and Grey's Anatomy), and spending time with my family.

Fun Fact:
I was a junior in high school when I took my first coaching job. The original team only had four players (two of which were my cousins) and I recruited the additional two. One of the recruits had a 19 point serving streak at regionals and we won our game 21-2.
