Notes from the Coach

I am so excited to be with LoneStar Volleyball this year. I took a brief sabbatical from coaching after becoming a school counselor, but found myself missing it, so I'm very grateful to have it back in my life again. I am a wife and mom of two great kids - Brennan & Landry - and 3 fur babies - Kari, Allie, & Kringle. 

 

It is my goal to see each athlete I work with reach their next level. Whether that is school ball or club, I adhere to the philosophy that excellence comes through adversity. It is because of this belief that I tell my players that mistakes will happen. In fact, they should be welcomed, because it's when mistakes occur that learning can take place and character is shown and built. Too much emphasis is placed on outcome instead of on process, but it's through the process that we learn and adapt. 

 

I look forward to this season!
