"I am humbled to be given this opportunity to work at CSM amongst such talented administration, staff, and coaches. Being able to build a program is a rarity, I'm thrilled to begin. I look forward to connecting with my Bay Area volleyball friends, mentors and fellow coaches, and am committed to finding the best talent in the area to be a part of this special program at CSM. My philosophy is simple: create a hard-working, prideful program by developing young women on the court, in the classroom, and beyond. My student-athletes will leave the Bulldog program knowing the values they learn here will also equip them for life after college."
