I live in State Center with my husband Jon and our two amazing kids, Michael and Molly. I graduated from UNI and began coaching in 1997. I became the Blue Wave head coach in 2008. I am also the Aquatic Director for the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA. I love coaching and everything about it. My favorite part about coaching is knowing that each swimmer grown up to have great memories from swimming. I have many great memories but my favorites are the friendships and bonds I have made with my coaches, swimmers and their parents.
