About Me


My Story

After breaking into the coaching world as a pseudo head coach (it's a long story, check it out here), I made more than my fair share of mistakes... But I also found great success. I was hooked right away.

Coaching is all I've ever wanted to do since that time, and I am excited to now share my obsession with both new and experienced volleyball coaches. By posting volleyball drills and other tips I've learned on Get The Pancake and through writing my ebook, "Coaching Volleyball: A Survival Guide for Your First Season," I hope to reach out to all coaches seeking a little motivation to put in the extra effort.

Although my blog has been around for awhile (2011!) I am excited to make it a priority in my life now that my formal education has come to a close. In addition to my coaching experiences, I have been working in Division I intercollegiate athletics for the past two years in compliance and see this blog as an opportunity to share my knowledge on the recruiting process and initial eligibility with coaches who are interested in helping their players get recruited.

Please contact me with and questions or requests. And don't forget to subscribe to and follow Get The Pancake on social media!

Next Steps...

Now that you know a little more about me and my inspiration for operating this website, I hope you'll read my articles and find a good drill or two to run at your next practice through my blog.
