My lacrosse life started in 2016 when my son attended a clinic to try the game. It was an instant connection for him, and it has quickly become his primary sport. At the clinic I met Daniel Hoffman, who I had played softball with many years ago. He told me how awesome lacrosse is and asked if I'd like to "help out" at practices. I wanted to be a part, so I said sure and the next thing you know I'm coaching the 5/6 boys. I have coached basketball, soccer, football, softball, and baseball in the past and much of that experience carries over. In the summer of 2018, I was lucky enough to attend the Bill Pilat "The Goalie School" with my son. We learned a ton and are very excited to pass some of that along to all the goalies that we can reach. In 2020 I was able to attend the Notre Dame University lacrosse coach’s clinic in South Bend. What a tremendous learning experience that was!
I started with Rogers Lacrosse club for the 2015 season. My daughter Maddie (5/6) and son Mikey (3/4) played. In 2016 I took over the head coaching job for the 3/4 team all three of my kids played Jacob (3/4). I have coached football, soccer, baseball, wrestling, box lacrosse and Lacrosse. I have been coaching for the past 8 years. In 2019 I joined the board as vice president. Jacob and Mikey have been doing select ball since 2016. In 2018 I had the opportunity to help coach a clinic that was put on by Paul Rabil. Amazing experience. I have the level 1 and 2 coaches training and I am currently the assistant coach for the 5/6 boys team.
I have been a part of the Rogers Lacrosse community in some fashion since 2017 when my son wanted to try something new in 3rd grade. My husband and I reside in South Hill with our 2 kids and since 2017 and every one of us plays a part in this club in one way or another. In 2019 I wanted to be a part of the club in a more active role by taking a board position. I am passionate about growing the sport in the South Hill and Puyallup community and that is what drives me in the current position I am in. I have 14 plus years of banking experience that I plan on utilizing in my current role within the board
