Women’s Soccer

I am very honored and thrilled, but at the same time humbled to be the new head women’s soccer coach at Shepherd University. I will uphold the Ram tradition of excellence. As a former female college athlete, I know that I can relate to the Shepherd University Women’s Soccer student-athletes.

It is my goal to reflect the vision of Shepherd University, providing an opportunity for committed student-athletes to develop in the classroom and on the field. As students and teammates, accountability and respect are core values of all Rams. I want to provide a solid foundation for our student-athletes, as they become the leaders of tomorrow. Certainly, soccer wins are my goal and I’ll teach how responding to a loss well can be just as valuable as winning gracefully. Bouncing back and dealing mentally and emotionally if they lose a soccer game will be a life-lesson, because after graduation they’ll need to know how to deal with adversity.

As we look to the future of Shepherd Soccer it will be important to have the support needed to be successful in the PSAC. While Shepherd University will continue to provide support for our program, private support will be the difference for the Rams in 2019 and beyond. I ask that you consider making an investment in our program. Your much needed gift will provide scholarship assistance, program needs and enhance the overall student-athlete experience for our Rams.

I am very excited to be a part of the Shepherd University sports program that you have built. Thank you and I look forward to meeting each of you.
