Volleyball quickly became more than just a sport to her, as she learned many lessons and met many great coaches and players who she considers family. Megan played in high school, club volleyball through the West Shore YMCA, summer leagues, and recreationally in college (not playing on a collegiate level has been one of her biggest regrets! If you want it, make it happen!). Megan has been surrounded by a great support of mentors, which has led her to want to share the love and knowledge of volleyball with others.

Megan is super excited to be an assistant coach this year and share her love for the game with all of you!
