Volleyball Experience:
I grew up in Torrance, CA. Both of my parents played volleyball. They took me to many beach tournaments in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach. My mother Julie Timm coached high school for many years. I was around volleyball nearly all my life and learned to play at a very young age. In high school I was most valuable player and chosen to be on the First Team All Bay League (a division 5A league). I was selected to be on the South Bay Volleyball Club, coached by Pat Zartman, a USVBA club team where we placed second at the Jr. National Davis Tournament. I then got a volleyball scholarship to attend and set for Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA.

Coaching:
I worked for the City of Torrance coaching many different sports. Later I returned to the coaching roll and became the Volleyball Coordinator and Head Coach for the City of Vista’s Recreation League.  

Philosophy:
The timing in which I began playing volleyball and the area in which I grew up gave, what I believe, the best coaching available. Today I see well-meaning coaches teach their players in ways that will not produce sustainable results. I really enjoy teaching players strong fundamental skills with proper form, excellent mental strength and ethical standards toward the people involved and the game. I believe that great coaching leads to great games, healthy relationships and a love of volleyball to last a lifetime. Too many times I have seen talented players burn out just as they have received a scholarship to the school of their dreams. I strive to coach with balance so that they continue playing, as I have, well past the college years.
