Coach MJ is excited to join Virginia Fusion Volleyball Club as the 15’s head coach and 16’s assistant. She is the inaugural Lightridge High School Varsity Volleyball Coach, and comes to Loudoun County after serving as the Varsity Assistant at Falls Church High School, where she helped develop 4 All-District selections including the Regional Defensive Specialist of the Year. As a local club coach last season at the 15’s level, Coach MJ was one of two coaches nationally (the only female coach) to earn both the AVCA NetWorks Award and the AVCA Innovation Award in their inaugural year (2020). 
Coach MJ played NCAA Division 1 volleyball at Missouri State University, helping her team to two NCAA tournament appearances and was an Academic All-Conference selection her senior year. In 2013, she was invited to try out for the USA Collegiate National Team in Colorado Springs.
Prior to college, Coach MJ was a varsity starter for the McClintock High School Chargers all four years. She was named All-Region all four years, All-State three years, and was named Arizona Big Schools Female Scholar Athlete of the Year for all sports her senior year. She was named to the Prepvolleyball.com Frosh 59 list her freshman year as an outside hitter, and again as a Prepvolleyball.com Academic All-American her senior year as a setter. Coach MJ holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the Honors College at Missouri State University and a Master’s Degree in Industrial/ Organizational Psychology from George Mason University. She is currently in the dissertation phase of her PhD program for Industrial/ Organizational Psychology. MJ coaches volleyball because she has a passion for developing young leaders through the sport that she loves.
