I’ve been coaching and playing for Optimum Beach since 2015 because I truly believe it’s the best beach volleyball program in Florida that develops the entire athlete. We focus on the physical, mental, and emotional side of the game while using it as a conduit for improving one’s personal life. As a player learning under Director Priscilla-Piantadosi Lima for so many years, it’s been so beneficial to be able to speak the same language to my own athletes ensuring congruence throughout the club. We not only take pride in the level of training and performance, but also in our Family First philosophy. We take care of each other on and off the court making our teammates and athletes feel like they have a judgement free home.

I have coached club since 2011 and started coaching at the high school level 2013 until present while taking a few years in 2015/2016 to assist with Eckerd College’s indoor and beach team. I now resided as head varsity coach at Cambridge Christian high school entering my fourth season in 2020 and co-director of Optimum Beach volleyball where I coach year-round.
