I have coached collegiately at the Division I level for over 17 years, four and a half of which were at The University of Oklahoma after I was done playing. The past 8 years I have spent investing in youth volleyball while maintaining my level of knowledge and speed of the game by officiating at the Division I level. My passion is to lead my Alma mater to a Big 12 Championship and its 1st National Championship!
