What I enjoy most about working at Terra State:

Everyday I get to do what I love. Volleyball has always been a passion of mine and having the opportunity to build a program and make everything they way I want it, has been a dream come true. I love the culture, family like atmosphere, and positive environment in our program. I love seeing where we start at the beginning of the year, being a part of their growth, and seeing how far we have came at the end of the year. 

Fun facts:

My assistant and I still compete competitively whenever we have free time. I have competed in various adult tournaments for the past ten years.
