I am originally from Houston, Texas. I was a former collegiate athlete at CSU, Colorado State University. I graduated in May of 2009. After graduating, I continued my basketball career overseas, playing in Portugal, Spain and Ukraine. During my years overseas I had the opportunity to coach kids from different Countries. It was an experience that will never be forgotten.
Currently I Coach basketball at Horizon High school where I have had the opportunity to appear in the Elite 8 (3) years in a row as well as enter the State Tournament for the past nine years. I love mentoring young woman athletes to be the best version of themselves.
As coaches I believe we have a tremendous responsibility to unlock our athletes unlimited potential! The unseen hours you put into your craft as a player or coach, the inner voice that tells you to keep going - keep pushing - this is my inner voice - and this drive is what I hope to inspire in those I coach.
