I grew up in southern California, when I was 10 years old I joined a summer league swim team. I fell in love with swimming and the following fall I joined the nearest club team “Corona Aquatics.” Later on in my high school years I joined “NOVA Aquatics” in Irvine. I swam varsity all four years at Santiago High School, and had the honor of being one of the team captains my senior year. I came to the Bay Area in 2010 to attend California State University East Bay on a swim scholarship, where I swam for Ben Loorz all four years. In December 2014, I graduated with a bachelor’s of science in Kinesiology.
In 2013, I took my love for swimming to a new level, I decided to try coaching. I coached for the San Ramon Aquacats for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. My time at the Aquacats gave me just a taste of what it means to be a coach. I started off as an assistant coach and worked my way to be the Assistant Head Coach for the 2014 season. Last spring, I was an assistant coach at California High school. This spring I am the Assistant Head Coach for Foothill high school. Last fall, I received an amazing opportunity to coach at Mills College in Oakland. I have truly enjoyed coaching at the collegiate level, and my interactions with the Mills team.
I am looking forward to my next opportunity, coaching at Ruby Hill. I am excited to work with you all to help you reach your goals and to grow the team as a whole.
