Years involved with Special Olympics: This is my first year involved with Special Olympics.

Sport(s) you coach: Basketball

How you became involved: Kelly and Zak Klein introduced me to Special Olympics about a year ago when I helped score keep for a bowling tournament. I always wanted to be involved some how but my busy schedule did not allow for it. I am fortunate now to have time to commit!

What do I like about coaching Special O athletes: I love working with the athletes! Each athlete has a unique quality that they bring to the basketball court. The best part about coaching is spending time with the athletes, as well as coaches.  It feels great to be a part of a team that carries a lot of heart!

Best accomplishments:  My best accomplishment is simply being a part of this team, as well as earning the respect of the athletes.
