Guilford College (Greensboro, NC) (Sports med)
I've played the game of basketball for as long as a decade. I started young, in elementary school, and decided to make it my career by the age of 12. I was on the varsity team all four years of my high school career.
I was offered many scholarships from several colleges and made Guilford College my choice. Unfortunately, I returned home shortly due to personal reasons and several overlooked and underestimated injuries that I developed in high school. However, after returning home I coached varsity and junior varsity girls at my old high school.
I love the game of basketball. Growing up it provided me with a future that, otherwise, I may have never had. It granted me the opportunity to travel and make new friends along the way. It gave me a reason to do my best in school and taught me lessons, such as self-confidence, that I will carry on with me for the rest of my life. Basketball, like other sports, builds character and honestly made me a better person and the person I am today. I intend to take all the lessons I've learned and use them in my teachings to help shape an exceptional ball player and an honorable human being.
I played the game of basketball for ten years. My freshman year, I was the sixth man on a varsity state championship team that consisted of five starting seniors. By my sophmore year, I was in the starting line up. My junior year I transferred schools in search of a better basketball future. My eleventh and twelfth grade years I was varsity team captain. Each year of my high school career I received academic and athletic letters. I aquired several "Player of the Game" awards. I was recognized in the Rocky River Conference top 20 women's basketball players. I was a part of several state championship AAU, or travel ball, teams. My junior and senior years i received the MVP and Scholar Athlete awards.
Basketball is one of my passions, whether I'm in a jersey on the court or coaching from the side line. I am very knowledgeable of the game and want the opportunity to pass down that knowledge and see it executed on the court, in the classroom, and throughout your community. I am excited to be a coach and motivator on the path to excellence.
I do have a full time job that operates on a second shift schedule. Off days and/or day time appointments work best with my work schedule, however some days are more flexible than others.

I am very knowledgeable of the sport of basketball. I accepted multiple awards for my outstanding accomplishments and received several scholarships from a collection of colleges and universities. I excelled, not only on the court as a player, but also in the classroom as a student. I've always felt that I had a better connection with a coach that was closer to me in age. For example, when I attended college basketball camps, the current college athletes were the coaches for drills and scrimmages. Those younger athletes, to me, were easier to relate to and learn from, and made my dream of becoming a college athlete that much more credible. I have the experience and I have the drive to make my pupils great; all I need is an opportunity.
