Volleyball has been a passion of mine since I was your age. I graduated from Spencer High School 
and went on to become an All-American at the University of Northern Iowa. Now, I have been 


Even though playing volleyball is my job, my true passion is sharing this amazing sport with 
younger players. I have coached numerous summer camps, club teams, and conducted

individual lessons over the years and it’s my goal that each player leaves the gym with more 
confidence and love for the sport! 


This camp is designed to teach the basics of volleyball in a positive environment! It’s my intent that
