Was born and raised in Clarksville, MD (not too far outside of Baltimore), and spent my youth playing career in that area. I have been involved in the game since I was 4, so at this point close to 24 years. Two back injuries my junior & senior year of high school kept me from playing collegiately. I played semi-pro in the WPSL in 2018 for the LA Wolves when moving to California.
I began coaching in 2015 and have experience coaching players ranging from U8 Grassroots to elite college players. My career began in Columbia, MD with the SAC '98 Girls Premier team. The team had much success with several Maryland State Cup Final appearances, USYS East Regional appearances, and sending several girls to DI Colleges that have now made NCAA College Cup appearances.
I moved to Southern California in 2017 to attend graduate school at Cal State Long Beach and graduated with my Masters in Coaching and Athlete Development in 2019, while coaching club soccer in the area. In my time in Southern California I have coached club teams to tournament wins and league promotions, Long Beach Wilson High School to back to back Moore League Championships, Los Angeles Westside Girls to the 2019 JCC Maccabi Games Gold Medal, and Cal South 2005 ODP Girls to the 2020 Far West ODP Regional Championship. I currently live in Huntington Beach, CA and am the Women's Assistant coach at Marymount California University, coach club soccer for Beach FC (named top 10 girls club in the US by Top Drawer Soccer), Los Alamitos High School, and for Cal South ODP. Currently holds USSF C License.
