Head Coach & Aquatics Director
I am entering my sixth year as the Head Coach at Aquatics Director of USSC. During my time at USSC, we have produced more than 100 State Qualifiers, Broken more than 70 Team Records, Qualified more than 25 swimmers for the Central Zone Sectional Meet, and produced four Junior National Qualifiers. It has been very rewarding to work with such a group of hard working swimmers and coaches.
I am proud to say that many of our swimmers go on to represent their high school swim teams and many become their team's captains because of the leadership skills and confidence they gain swimming for USSC.
Swimming with USSC has also opened doors for many of our athletes to continue swimming at the collegiate level. We currently have seven USSC swimmers competeting on their University's teams.
I hold a BA in Psychology with a Minor in Exercise Science, and graduated with a Masters in Counseling in 2009 from Oakland University. I have coached various high school teams in the Macomb and Oakland County area over the past twelve years and now coach at Stoney Creek High School. I have been very fortunate to coach numerous swimmers to the County and State level of high school swimming.
