I started my coaching career at Lake Middle School. I spent two years there before
I became an assistant coach at St. Amant High School where I have been for 5 seasons.
I have also been teaching since 2016 in Ascension Parish. I am currently a P.E. teacher
at Galvez Middle School. I have coached every age group, but in recent years I have spent
most of my time with middle and high school aged kids. I am a St. Amant High School Alumni where I played for 4 years. I received All-District and All-Metro honors and was also named an “All-Star” during my time playing there. I also played club for 5 years. When I am not spending my time coaching I play at Mangos Beach Volleyball Club.

I’ve been coaching 9 years with Bayou Bandits which is now called Ignite. I’ve coached different levels of 14s and 15s in my 9 years. I was the freshmen coach at St. Amant HS in 2016. I’ve been around volleyball for nearly 26 yrs and played club volleyball from 1994-2005. I played for Assumption HS and were State Runner-Up in Division I in 2005. I played at Mango’s in college, but now with 2 small kids, it’s hard for me to find the time when I’d prefer to coach.
