Aside from my own children’s success, the look on a player or family’s faces when barriers are overcome and goals are achieved is amazing. Most of all I am passionate about volleyball because it is the ultimate team sport. The teamwork required in this dynamic sport instills life skills that can impact a child’s life.”
