I grew up in Washington and attended Tumwater High School where I developed my passion for athletics. I was fortunate to play my favorite sport, soccer, at a college level at UVU. I am married and have three children. I have enjoyed being involved and coaching my children at competitive levels over the years. I have recently completed my masters in Exercise and Sports Science and I am more than ready and excited to start my new adventure teaching PE/Health and coaching girl's soccer here at Westlake High School. In my free time I enjoy running, playing soccer, basketball and volleyball. As a family we enjoy hiking, boating, and fishing. Go Thunder!!
