I was raised in Naches, Washington. I was a 4-year, 2 sport, Varsity Athlete at Naches High School, playing both soccer and golf until I graduated in 2009. After graduating High School I attended Columbia Basin College on a soccer scholarship, where I played for one season in which we earned 2nd place in the NWAAC. I then returned to Yakima and played soccer for 2 seasons (redshirting one), while earning my AA. I then enrolled in Heritage University where I majored in Middle Level Education. I began teaching in the Yakima school district and coaching at Davis in 2015, as an assistant Girls Soccer Coach and the Head Girls Golf Coach.
As the Head Girls Golf Coach the team has received some exceptional titles. Cassie Kim earned the District Championship all four years (2015-2019). She also earned 5th place, 3rd place and 1st place finishes in the state tournament. The team earned a league championship during the 2017-2018 season and a district championship during the 2018-2019 season. I was also named Big Nine Coach of the Year for 2017-2018.
When I am not teaching, coaching or playing soccer or golf, I love to spend time with my husband Joe, or son Liam, and our three dogs!
