So excited about joining the coaching staff this year. Teaching the newest swimmers as they embark on a fantastic journey is a great place to be!

Swam with the Joliet YMCA JETS (a long time ago), the inaugural Valley View Gators and Ball State University. Lincoln-Way did not have a team way back then - too much interest!

Coached the Valley View Gators, Delta High School in Muncie, IN and the Joliet YMCA JETS.
