Soccer has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up in the Lehigh Valley playing soccer. I played for various clubs and then went on to play varsity soccer at Salisbury High School. In my collegiate career, I played at PSU Altoona as a midfielder. After college, a group of close friends and I organized a local club team, Gore FC, in honor of our late friend, Chris Gore.
We went on to win the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League in 2013. From there I began my coaching career with Western Lehigh. I attained a D-level coaching license accredited by the EPYSA. I became the coach of the Western Lehigh United Titans U-13 travel team. We became an elite travel team that reached the ranking of 8th in the state of Pennsylvania. I coached the Titans until the U-18 season.
Several of my players continued on to a collegiate career at various universities and colleges. I have taught in the East Penn School District for 13 years as an elementary teacher. I am excited to begin coaching our youngest players in the micros and futures program.
