Coaching Years of Experience:

11 years soccer coaching experience (23 years coaching in all sports).

Started with MOD and have been an assistant coach at Kent United for 8 years.

Throughout my life I have been fortunate to learn from some elite college coaches in many sports. I have worked closely with PLU legendary football coach, Frost Westering and National Champion UW Softball coach, Heather Tarr. I bring the philosophies of these coaches to my style of helping each player on my teams to grow.

I have been influenced in my soccer coaching by some of the most successful coaches in Kent United, Jennifer Smith and Tim Leeman. I have also studied the game with James McPike, a Youth Development Coach with West Bromwich Albion of the Premiere League. The West Brohm Academy is one of the few level 1 academies in the Premiership. James' rapid growth through their youth development program shows his amazing skill as an instructor. I feel privileged to have learned from James.

I look forward to coaching the G01 team this year, and promise we will continue to play a high level of soccer.
