As a native Memphian and a lover of all things related to sports, I am overjoyed to be the assistant athletic director at St. Mary’s. After graduating from the University of Tennessee, I returned to Memphis and began searching for ways to stay active and to stay involved in sports. Coaching lacrosse and basketball during my free time became a passion. In pursuit of this interest, I enrolled at the University of Memphis and received a Masters in Education. I spent three great years in the classroom, but found myself more at home teaching either in the gym or on the practice field.
When not at work, I am camping and traveling to different parts of the world. What seemingly is an attempt to keep orthopedic doctors in business, I enjoy watersports, snow skiing, mountain biking, and ultimate frisbee.
An Annapolis, Maryland native, I began my lacrosse career in the 2nd grade and played competitively for the next 15 years, including captaining the nationally ranked Annapolis High school team before continuing my lacrosse career at the Division I level at Boston University. During my tenure, the BU Terriers won three America East conference championships with three appearances in the NCAA tournament, highlighted by a 2005 season with a record of 18-2 and season high ranking of 3rd in the nation with a final loss to the University of Virginia in the NCAA quarterfinals.
Following my college career, I began coaching at the Severn School in Severna Park, MD for 6 seasons before joining the St. Mary's staff upon moving to Memphis. I work full time at FedEx and when not coaching or working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring Memphis and traveling. I am very excited to return for my third season with the Turkeys.
