Coaching Philosophy

We have been called as Christians, to love God and to love our neighbor. Through Dordt soccer, I want our athletes to be able to build meaningful, Christ-filled relationships on and off the pitch. I want each athlete who enters this program to grow as individuals who are invested in their faith, their team, their academics and their community.   As a coach, I believe that Christ has given me the ability, as well as passion to mentor and build lasting relationships with these athletes, foster an uplifting and encouraging women’s program, while helping each athlete flourish in their time at Dordt University.
