For as long as I can remember, volleyball has been a part of my life. Growing up in Hawaii, I’ve played multiple sports but volleyball was the one that I knew would always be with me throughout my journey of life. I played all throughout high school and was fortunate enough to play one year of club volleyball. My experience playing at Kamehameha Volleyball Club was the best time that I ever had. I learned more about volleyball in the four months that I played there than I did in the four years that I played at my high school. I am grateful for that opportunity which pushed me in the direction of becoming a physical educator and coach at the collegiate level.

Having played volleyball at multiple levels (high school, club, junior college, and university) gave me valuable experience as a student-athlete but also as a future collegiate coach. Upon completing my playing career, I transitioned into coaching where I've spent 34 years of sharing my passion for volleyball. Providing players an opportunity to learn, grow, play at a high level, and understand what is expected of them to do their best is what gives me joy to continue to coach volleyball.

I have been playing volleyball since I was a little girl. I started out as a ball girl for the team my mom coached and quickly fell in love with the sport. I started playing club volleyball at 10 and played four years on my high school varsity volleyball team and earned All-League all four years. I went on to play for four years for Point Loma Nazarene University and graduated with a B.A. in Exercise Science.

I have been coaching and training with Diablo since 2015 and I have been coaching at San Ramon Valley High School since 2012. I have a passion for working with young athletes and helping them become better athletes and teammates. My goal for each season is that each player feels like they have gained a better knowledge of the game and feel like they have worked hard to improve their abilities.
