I joined NCSA after 8 years of Coaching Division I track and field in sprints, jumps, hurdles, multis, and strength and conditioning. As a collegiate coach I won 8 conference championship titles, coached 50+ conference champions, 150+ conference scorers, and recorded 300+ personal best performances.
I began my career as a three sport athlete in high school; playing volleyball, basketball and ran track. I eventually committed to Radford University where I was the Big South Conference Pentathlon Champion, Freshman of the Year, and set the conference pentathlon record before transferring to Marshall University. At Marshall, I became the first ever heptathlon conference champion for the Thundering Herd, as well as earned three Conference USA All-Conference finishes in the multi events. In addition to the multis I was a member of the Herd’s record-holding, All-Conference USA 4×100 and NCAA East Preliminary qualifying 4×400 relay teams.
As a collegiate coach and athlete I gained lifelong friends and learned the most valuable life lessons while simultaneously being educated. I’m so excited to join the NCSA team to help student-athletes and their families to pursue their dreams of competing at the next level which will give them the opportunity to pursue higher education and build those lifelong bonds.
I currently reside in my home state of Virginia with my son and fiancé.
