I have been playing soccer since I was 5 years old. I received a scholarship to play soccer at a Division II college in North Carolina where I earned my undergraduate degree in physical education. I also have a Masters in Teaching and an NC Professional Teaching License from UNC-Pembroke.
I coached a high school girls varsity soccer team for 2 years in Pembroke where I built the program from scratch by recruiting many girls from other sport teams within the high school. They enjoyed playing soccer and so much that some of the girls are currently coaching their siblings in recreational soccer.
When I moved to Raleigh, I became involved in Club Soccer at Triangle United in Chapel Hill; where I am the head coach for a local U-17 Challenge Team..
Currently, I teach Physical Education for Grades (K-7) at Triangle Math & Science Academy; I have also taught Kindergarten for a couple of years.
