Style: Right

I grew up in my parent’s 12-lane bowling center in the small southern Illinois town of Vandalia. I went from liking bowling, to hating bowling, to LOVING bowling. I always had a competitive nature. In high school I played tennis and softball, but always knew that bowling was what I wanted to do. It was a part of me. After high school, bowling led me to my current home in Nashville, TN. In college I majored in Human and Organizational Development with an emphasis in International Leadership, which means I essentially studied a lot of nonprofit organizations. I always loved the idea of finding ways to help people. After graduation I decided to stay in Nashville and continue my journey at Vanderbilt as coach. Having the unique perspective of coach and athlete has helped me in so many ways, both bowling related and not! I hope to continue down this path and continue to help young women through one of the most pivotal moments in their life. Outside of bowling I love playing the piano, crafting, traveling, biking, and spending time with my family. My favorite sports team is the Chicago Cubs and I prefer to re-watch shows that I love as opposed to watching something new (yay Netflix!). One of my proudest non-bowling adventures is being on the Junior Board of the YWCA of Middle Tennessee – an organization dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
