From 1st until 6th grade, I was in a group called PIPS (Players in Progress) where we learned ball-handling skills and performed at high school basketball games during half-time. We even did a half-time show for the Harlem Globetrotters in Austin, TX when I was in 6th grade. I played basketball for 7 years and played AAU basketball for 5 years. I love teaching the skills of the game and ball-handling.
I played high school soccer all four years at Westlake High School (3 at the Varsity Level) and obtained numerous awards including honorable mention all-district my sophomore and junior years and First Team All-district my senior year (the highest award). My senior year our team made it to the 5A regional finals (2002). I then went on to play soccer in college at Southwestern University all four years and currently hold the record there for the best save percentage in my career. Lastly, I have coached JV girls soccer for two year at the high school level and have assisted the varsity coach in making playoffs both years I coached.
I began swimming when I was less than two years old and swam for 7 years on teams including one year in college at Southwestern University. My specialty was breast-stroke, but I also swam various freestyle events and the IM (the Individual Medley) which includes all four strokes (freestyle, breast-stroke, butterfly, and back-stroke).
I have taught freshmen volleyball for two years at Fort Bend ISD. I am extremely knowledgeble about the sport and love playing it and coaching it.
