My love of lacrosse began 42 years ago growing up in Long Island when a friend brought his older brother's lacrosse sticks to play with at recess. I've played regularly my whole life, and I was fortunate to move to Atlanta in the early 90s at a time when lacrosse was just starting to be played here.
As a law student, I was able to play all over the Southeast with the MCLA-level Emory University team. I played in various adult leagues for many years.
Now as a parent, I've coached more than 9 seasons at the youth level. I obtained my first US Lacrosse coaching certification years ago, and am constantly working on adding new certifications and learning new coaching methods attending lectures and clinics with my fellow Wheeler Junior coaches. My young players will tell you my favorite part of lacrosse is defense, and that ground balls are the most important statistic!
I coached lacrosse for 2 years at Wheeler & McEachern High Schools as Head JV coach and Assistant Varsity coach. I have been with the Wheeler Jr. program since Fall 2018.
I grew up in Macon, GA and went to college at VSU and Georgia State. Currently, I teach 7th grade Social Studies at a Cobb county middle school and serve as a sponsor for student council.
I've head coached boys and girls lacrosse for 8 years, 16 seasons. I coach boys summer and winter tournament lacrosse teams and I am Level 3 certified with USA Lacrosse. I also coach boys and girls basketball teams between lacrosse seasons. My favorite coaching experiences are watching the athletes learn, develop, and have fun.
I grew up in Raleigh, NC and graduated from Appalachian State with a BS in Kinesiology and a MS in Sports Management, and graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an MBA. My daughter, Kate, plays lacrosse for the Wheeler High School girls team and loves Wheeler. My son, Will, plays for the Jr Wheeler lacrosse program. We have a passion for lacrosse and enjoy living in this area.
