I was the head coach at NCAA I Brigham Young University from 2008-2011 and NJCAA I Salt Lake Community College from 2002-2008 where we were consistently ranked in the top 5 in the country. Finishing as runner-up National Champions in 2007.
More recently I worked directly with Troy Tanner (1988 Olympic Gold Medalist and Gold Medalist coach to Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor in 2008) as part of the Pepperdine Women’s Volleyball staff. In addition to working with the Lady Waves at Pepperdine, I was the elite coach for Crescent Beach Volleyball Club under the direction of Sinjin Smith (legendary King of the Beach) before moving to Colorado in 2017.
I am a Gold Medal Squared Clinician and have worked directly with Carl McGown, founder of “Gold Medal Squared”. Carl has coached for 30 years Internationally and has earned Gold Medals, NCAA National Championships and Hall of Fame recognition. I was lucky to have both Carl McGown and Chris McGown as volunteer coaches on my staff at BYU.
In 2012, I personally volunteered with the Women’s US National team and learned more from coaches Hugh McCutcheon, Karch Kiraly and Paula Weishoff before they left for the 2012 London Games.
I started coaching one-on-one with executives, coaches, professionals, entrepreneurs and individuals in 2012 and absolutely love it. In 2016 I added Certified High Performance Coaching to my list of tools and have found it extremely rewarding and benficial for everyone.
I am passionate about speaking to groups and running events to empower teams and organizations to experience paradigm shifts. There is incredible energy and power that comes from working with groups in a close setting; it never gets old for me.
I look forward to working with you in any of these capacities soon!
