Playing

experience

I played Beach volleyball

professionally from 95 to 98. After High School in 92 I moved to California

and was able to train with a couple professional athletes and spent the next 6

years trying to qualify for the AVP and earn enough money during the summers to

work part time in the fall so I could train for the next season.

In 1998 I was diagnosed with Muscular

Dystrophy and playing career was over. I continued playing for a couple years

but not at the level I once was.  I

started working with Autistic kids in 2001 during the summers at camps. Couple

years later I began my coaching career. Volleyball has been very good to me,

its given me the opportunity to travel all over the world, I am very excited to

continue growing the game with STVA.
