Angie began her coaching career starting the Windsboro Waves swim team in Lee's Summit Missouri in 1998. She coached that team for three years as the Head Coach and grew that team from 2 brothers to over 40 swimmers in that time. She was a swim instructor with Jeff Kelly, Inc. prior to that, which provided small group swim lessons which focused on proper form and offered lessons in homeowners associations and private health clubs through the Kansas City area.
 
After a short break in the corporate world working in finance and real estate, the pool called her back as she really missed working with children and teens. She got a job working for the Kansas City YMCA in 2009. She then was the assistant coach for Raytown and Raytown South High School Girls team for 2010-2012. And coached for Kansas City Swim Academy (USA Swimming) in 2010-2012.
 
In 2012, her husband's job moved the family to Northwest Arkansas where she coached the Northwest Arkansas YMCA swim team for 2012-2013 seasons. While in Arkansas she also taught private swim lessons, specializing in helping swim team kids gain advantages in the pool. Also, she also worked as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) specializing with teens in the foster care system. 
 
She is super excited to get back into coaching here at the Wildwood YMCA. She brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the Waves.
