What makes you happy: Seeing others happy and being able to sit and do absolutely nothing every once in a while

Hobbies: playing at the gym to think of new exercises and routines, exploring new hiking trails especially those with waterfalls

What you love about coaching: Watching the learning process happen, concepts clicking, and the application at game time

Pet peeves: Unnecessary drama from people holding back feelings instead of vocalizing them in a mature manner, people that act the way others think is “cool” rather than being themselves

What do you know about yourself today that you didn’t always know: I am a much stronger person than I ever thought physically, emotionally, and mentally.  It took years of training but field hockey helped me with all of these aspects to help make the person I am today.

What would your older self today, tell your younger self 10 years ago:  Stop worrying about what other people think, no one really cares because they are just as worried about themselves. Just do what you do best and live your life without worry.
