Soccer is my passion and not only do I love to develop players, I love to win and instill those characteristics into my players and teams. I want to set them up to not only be successful soccer players but also be great people off the field.

I believe in player development and focusing on the four pillars of the game: psychological, physical, technical, and tactical. Through these four pillars, my goal is to develop each girl into the total player so they have the tools to play at the collegiate and national level. Through high intensity training sessions, my goal is to push each player mentally and physically in order to help them develop to their highest potential.

I also work as a registered nurse at Banner Desert in the Trauma ICU. I love helping people both on and off the field.
