This will be my seventh year at Lovejoy coaching soccer. I have spent the last six years as the assistant coach on the boys side and this is my first year as head coach of the girls team. I grew up in Grapevine, Texas, where I played at Colleyville Heritage High School for three years where I earned first and second team all-district honors. After high school, I attended Austin College in Sherman, Texas, where I also played soccer for four years and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. In 2011, I received my Masters in Secondary Education from the University of North Texas. During my time at UNT, I student taught at Grapevine High School where I assisted the boys soccer team. I am currently the head coach for the 2005 North Texas Boys Olympic Development Program and I am an assistant for the Region 3 team. I have a USSF National "C" License, a USSF National Youth License, and a United Soccer Coaches Premier Diploma. I was also the 2017 Boys 5A Region 2 Assistant Coach of the Year.
I will be teaching STEM classes at Willow Springs Middle School this year. For the past six years, I have taught many different STEM courses at the middle school level. It has been a privilege being a part of the STEM program and I look forward to watching and taking part in building it even more.
I feel so lucky to be a part of this community and to start my teaching and coaching career here in 2012. I am extremely excited to take over the girls program where I know we will go on to do excellent things.
