Hails From:
Dana Point, CA

Feasted on Knowledge at:
Lewis & Clark College and L&C Graduate School of Education

Kicked the Ball around this much:
I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old and on the Orange Pandas. Fast forward to college and I was once again wearing orange and black playing collegiate soccer for Lewis & Clark College. In between that time, I coached U12 Girls for three seasons when I was 16 while also playing club and high school ball. After I graduated from LC, I assistant coached the women’s college team while finding multiple outdoor, indoor, and futsal teams to play on in Portland. I currently play on soccer and futsal teams as well as train players individually.

Fav Futsal/Soccer Memory:
All the times I’ve nutmegged someone. Hands down.

Why RCF?:
I love the camaraderie between players, refs, and teams at RCF. As soon as you walk into the complex you see someone you know, recognize, or someone waving you down because you don’t know the people on the team you’re subbing for.

Hails From:
Greeneville, Tennessee

Feasted on Knowledge at:
Rhodes College & Murray State University

Kicked the Ball around this much:
Since moving to Portland, I have worked with new and experienced players from 18 months to adult. I have coached outdoor soccer since 2012 through Portland Parks & Rec and North Portland Soccer Club, and I have been a part of the RCF Soccer Stars, Youth Academy, and Adult Clinic programs since 2016. I grew up around baseball and football and eventually ran track and cross country in school, so I came to play, coach, and enjoy soccer much later in life, but I’m glad I have! It would have been difficult not to in Portland, with so much culture and opportunity to participate in the sport, and the futsal classes and league play at RCF are a great way to get involved, develop skill, and grow as a player and now as a coach.

Fav Futsal/Soccer Memory:
Using what can best be described as “the force” to slot a game-winning goal through traffic with 30 seconds to play. At halftime I consciously said to myself, “it looks like you might have to win this game,” and I told myself to be ready. When the moment arrived, I knew it, and I was.

Why RCF?:
The width and breadth of classes, league play, and developmental opportunities, from entry-level to competitive, young children to adult, make RCF a great place to learn and grow in the sport, for players, families, and coaches!
