For as long as I can remember, volleyball has been more than just a sport to me; it's been a passion. My journey began as an outside hitter when I was stationed in Alaska where I played for three years. After I came back "stateside" I was a player/coach for just over 5 years for an intramural team.

Despite some minor setbacks preventing me from playing competitively, my love for the game never wavered. This passion naturally transitioned into officiating. I was walking to my seat in the bleacher for one of my daughter's soccer games when I saw an advertsement on the big screen for becoming a referee... in any sport. And, honestly, the thought never occurred to me until that moment.

Just in my short time as a referee I've accumulated a wealth of experience and an abundance of knowledge that developed into a whole new passion and love for the sport. My dedication to officiating is not just about ensuring fair play; it's about contributing to the sport's integrity and helping foster a positive environment for players, coaches, and spectators alike. Officiating has given me a unique perspective on the game, one that I am eager to share with others.

Being volunteer mentor is a role I embrace wholeheartedly. Mentorship is about more than just knowing and imparting the rules, it's about sharing the love and respect I have for the game and th intangibles that can't be taught from a book. Through my experience in the military as a Drill Sergeant and my continued service as a firefighter/paramedic, I believe in leading by example, demonstrating professionalism, and nurturing a sense of community among officials. My goal is to support new referees, helping them develop the skills and confidence needed to excel on the court.

My commitment to you is openness, honesty, candor, humility, availability and a willingness to persist though any hardship. By providing guidance, offering insights, and sharing my experiences, I hope to inspire you to pursue officiating with the same enthusiasm and dedication. Mentoring is it's about fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where you can thrive.

I aim to be a source of encouragement and inspiration. Officiating has enriched my life in countless ways, and I am committed to helping others discover the same fulfillment and joy. Together, we can ensure the continued growth and integrity of volleyball, one game at a time.
